Today, precisely on the occasion of the beginning of spring, an artistic mural dedicated to the native Molise trout was inaugurated on the internal perimeter wall of the John Paul II primary school of the Istituto Comprensivo Statale Leopoldo Montini. The work was created by Davide Smake Nuzzi, a young local artist, member of the Malatesta Association and former organizer of the “Draw the Line Festival” in Campobasso, an urban redevelopment project through street art.
The mural, which depicts two unmistakable Mediterranean trout, aims to make young students aware of environmental issues and underline the need to protect the natural resources of our territory. An important moment for the school and for the community, which from today will be able to enjoy the presence of a street art work in the school courtyard.
“The European project LIFE Nat.Sal.Mo has reached its conclusion but the commitment to enhance the biodiversity of this area continues – said Antonio Nicoletti, head of protected areas and biodiversity of the environmental association -. Thanks to the great work carried out by the whole partnership and with the acceptance of the recently presented River Contracts, we are sure that the work started will continue. This street art work therefore wants to be a gift for the younger generations and a message for the Molise community which is the custodian of a great natural heritage that deserves to be protected and valued to the fullest”.
At the inauguration ceremony, in addition to the street artist Smake and the school authorities, Antonio Nicoletti, Head of Protected Areas and Biodiversity of Legambiente, Nicolaia Iaffaldano of UniMol, Andrea De Marco, President of Legambiente Molise, Massimo Pillarella of the Molise Region and the Councilor municipal Simone Cretella.
