The event is one of the first appointments of a Webinar program entitled “Art under the sky” and dedicated to a contemporary urban art, a lively expression of the new generations of Italian artists. This art also nourishes an aspiration to the creative freedom of young people, which escapes the market and the profits produced by all contemporary non-museum art and the exclusive prerogative of collectors, gallery owners and art critics. This art also restores the original sense of his artistic being in the world: living the spaces of everyday life - be squares, palaces, places of worship…. Street art ultimately lives among everyday common lives, because it’s on the wall, a space nor opened or closed to the public, nor protected, but like anything else at the mercy of the ravages of time.

Fare cinema”: a systematic action, conceived by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation with the aim of promoting quality Italian cinema production abroad, thanks to the diplomatic-consular network and the Italian Cultural Institutes. An ambitious project, in collaboration with the Ministry of Heritage and Culture and Tourism, uses a multi-annual strategy and the participation of public and private actors in the Italian film industry, particularly ANICA and Istituto Luce Cinecittà. "Fare Cinema" is one of the main strategic actions of the "Vivere ALL’Italiana" integrated promotion plan.

Francesco Camillo Giorgino, aka Millo, was born in Mesagne in the province of Brindisi in 1979. He attended the scientific high school in Mesagne and moved to Pescara at the age of 18 to graduate with honors from the Faculty of Architecture. Always passionate and tireless designer, after his studies he carries out a personal aesthetic research in the field of painting, focusing on the relationship between space and the individual moving from micro to macro scale. In the last decade, he has focused on the production of large masonry works that have made him known and made him travel almost all over the world. He has taken part in several street art festivals and non-governmental events and his works are now visible in China, India, Australia, Thailand, Polynesia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Bolivia, Polynesia, Mexico, California, Canada, England, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, Lithuania, Georgia, Cyprus, Greece, and Italy.
In addition to a production that boasts over 120 masonry works scattered around the globe, he also creates works on canvas which have been exhibited in London, Chicago, Rio De Janeiro, Paris, Los Angeles, Rome and Milan.

Luigi Capasso is an Italian film director. He graduated at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples with a bachelor degree in painting and an expertise in public art. His works are staging where space, light and performance are harmoniously intertwined in order to communicate stories and visions of the current reality. In 2013 he moved to Montreal with his partner Sara. His first short film, Distance, was selected in several festivals in Europe and in North America, such as the Festival International du Film sur l’Art (FIFA) in Montreal and the Food Film Festival in New York. Distance also won an award for the best short film in the Devour film festival in Wolfville, Nova Scotia.
