About Us >
The MuraLi project was born with the idea of bringing art and culture within the city of Livorno. We are an Under 35 association, born with the dream of wanting to relaunch our city, aiming to create an open-air museum.
Through Street Art and muralism we want to add something new that you can visit, experience and experience on a daily basis, thus stimulating interest within lesser-known neighborhoods and areas.
We believe that, through the implementation of a sustainable project such as that of MuraLi, the image of Livorno can be relaunched in the Italian and international context.
Stappati / Uncorked represents a bottled mermaid holding a narwhal to symbolize the corkscrew. The bottle is a clear historical reference to the messages sent by sailors in ancient times. The profound meaning of the work encourages the observer to free himself from preconceptions and patterns in which we live: in fact the siren, whose head is still locked in the bottle, to be truly free and let her ideas flow into the sea, is forced to open the cap. The fact that she is still entangled in it without being able to get out indicates that it is precisely her own thought of her that is not yet free.
The work that celebrates the centenary of the death of Amedeo Modigliani entitled “L’âme de Montparnasse”, wants to create a real fil rouge between Livorno, the place where Modigliani was born and raised, and the Montparnasse district in Paris where has developed his creative genius, giving life to his most famous works, with the unique and unmistakable style that made him famous. The work is inspired by one of the few photographic portraits of Modigliani that has survived to the present day, which is however reinterpreted and incorporated here with colored and abstract elements.
“My creative process is spontaneous and always in relation with what I live and what I see in the natural world. These aspects are always at the heart of my need to paint. I try to bring my idea of natural elements that struck me into my paintings. The subject is always abstract, sometimes more geometric and static, other times more dynamic and instinctive. I never want to convey a certain message in my works, but I try to intrigue the public about every possible meaning or interpretation. “
The mural, entitled “Time Is Running Backwards”, takes its cue from the former Odeon Cinema, a few steps from the City Center Park. The cinema was designed and built between 1952 and 1953 by the futurist scenographer Virgilio Marchi. It was the largest cinema in the city, particularly appreciated for its excellent acoustics and the refinement of space sounds. Now closed and recently converted into a parking lot and a fitness center, the mural recalls and pays homage to a building that has remained in the hearts and memories of the people of Livorno.
“Catalog” is the title of the mural by Lucamaleonte made on the perimeter wall of the Bosco dei Cappuccini. It is an environmental-themed work, in which all the bird species that populate our city are represented and depicted, which continue to thrive thanks to the presence of vital green spaces, such as the small oasis of the Bosco dei Cappuccini. The work is part of a larger project, which involved children and teenagers in various activities within the park, with the aim of educating them to respect the environment and increase their responsibility towards nature and management of resources.

The Legal Wall of Via Goito is the first in the city of Livorno and was born as a place open to all and able to welcome the initiatives of artists, collectives and associations, who want to express themselves with decorative intention. Legal walls are free spaces, intended for anyone who wants to express themselves in the practice of writing and Street Art. On a social level, the Legal Wall will allow the comparison between young people who share the same passion and who will have the opportunity to find themselves in a place in which is allowed to draw, thus also limiting any incursions on other private surfaces. Our intent, in fact, is precisely to create a dialogue with young people, giving them the opportunity to express themselves, communicate and create constructive meeting spaces within the urban context also through the creation of workshops and workshops.
The project for the Bosco dei Cappuccini in Via Cecconi was born in 2019 and is part of a vision of urban redevelopment of this small city oasis.

The Coloriamo Gorgona project was born from the desire to open Gorgona to art and allow prisoners to participate in a redevelopment project of the island. Following the will of the Director of the Livorno Prison and of the detached section of the Island of Gorgona, with the support of the Guarantor of the rights of prisoners of the Municipality of Livorno, and thanks to the contribution of Asa Livorno, our Association has created a mural on the prison island.

The mural was created by the artist Zed1 who, working with the inmates, told about the island’s so particular identity, choosing as the theme that of rebirth represented with the lightness of the fairy tale narrative typical of his work.
