This art installation, located close to the ancient ring of walls of Monteriggioni,  represents an element of vitality and resistance to the wall that overlooks and dominates it.
The wall is intended not only as a physical barrier but also as a symbol of the migration policies carried out by Europe for over 10 years based on rejection. They have been performed in violation of human rights fomenting racist and xenophobic violence.
The artwork, with its beauty, it is not meant to be consolatory but to represent hope, the yearning for overcoming what divides and separates and which implies as well the overcoming of the interior wall which does not allow to recognize in others our shared humanity.
Franca Marini, June 2021
