MURALES ART
  Orgosolo, open air gallery
 
Orgosolo is a small village in Barbagia, inland area in the centre of Sardinia. It is characterized by the popular murales painted on the walls since 1968. 
The "murales" activity  starts during the Springtime of 1975, for the Italian Resistance and the Liberation from the Fascism thirty-years. The idea to celebrate the event with paintings and manifests was of Francesco Del Casino, a art teacher in the middle school, born in Siena (Tuscany) but living in Orgosolo. Originally the “murales” was made by the students and coloured with water-colours, later they became more binding and of elevated style. Some of the most famous artists are Pasquale Buesca and Vincenzo Floris. The "murales" are an artistic but also a remonstrance expression. They represent facts of Sardinian life but also facts of the world historical situation: the unemployed demonstrations, the brigandage, the struggle for the emancipation of women, the right of study, the war in Spain, the atomic bomb, the Italian political situation are some of the topics represented.
The language used is very easy and often the artists enrich their paintings with commentary notes, sometime in "orgosolese" (Orgosolo's dialect). In the most part of the "murales" you could see tracks of the Cubist style, sometime with proper "mention" as for Picasso and his famous painting "Guernica", represented on the main streets of Orgosolo. The solid and squared forms (women with large hips and men with asymmetrical, gnarled and hypertrofic hands) are the most evident sign of this influence. The colours are bright and the pictorial technique are simple and so subject to deterioration. Recently the "murales" have been enriched of new artistical style as the "tromp-l'oeil" and the surrealism, with a square dedicated to Joan Mirò.
