WHERE TO FIND OUR WALLS
BORGO DEI CAPPUCCINI 178
The facade in Borgo dei Cappuccini is of mayor size.
The fact that she still remains trapped without being able to get out, indicates that it is precisely her thoughts itself that are not yet free.

VIA DEI CARROZZIERI 19
The surface situated on Via dei Carrozzieri is a hidden gem.
Located in the heart of Borgo, in a quiet passage way connecting Borgo dei Cappuccini and Via San Carlo, a little square emerges, these days frequently used as a parking space.
What it’s important for Moneyless is to let the audience think freely. He never want to convey a certain message in his works, but he try to make the audience curious about any possible meanings or interpretations.”
The mural is curated by Mura-li with the support of the Municipality of Livorno, CCN Borgo, the L.E.M. Livorno, Pro Loco Livorno
Finished: 15 SEPTEMBER 2020
Via carlo bini
The corner wall located on Via Carlo Bini is a unique piece in Borgo.
With a characteristic presence viewed right from the busy road strolling alongside Piazza Mazzini, you immediately see an abstract shape flaring out, inviting you to enter the neighborhood.
The building is located on a key passage point in the area, for daily commuters or for those going to one of the many restaurants and bars nearby.
The abstract architecture is a residu of the newly created buildings after the bombing during the Second World War. As a street, Via Carlo Bini however was already founded in 1865 when privately owned land was converted to building blocks to host the working community of the near-by situated docks of cantieri Orlando, now known a ‘Porta Mare’
Carlo Bini himself, a colourful character, was a writer and patriot, producing works which were considered revolutionary and ahead of his time.
With this mindset we approach the space given at the corner: colorful, revolutionary and slightly ahead of our time.status
VIA SAN CARLO
Another important wall is the appearance in Via San Carlo.
A tall and spacious wall, located halfway down Via San Carlo, connected to an often overlooked passage way leading into the center of Livorno.
The wall, situated at the beginning of a path which connects Via San Carlo on one side, passing a park, a parking and the famous ‘English Cemitary’ to the exit situated near Piazza Cavour and shopping street of Via Ricasoli. An ideal shortcut to travel in and out of the center.
The park ‘Parco del Odeon’ is one of few parks in Borgo and offers a green area for playing kids and their parents, the local youth and for the elderly to gather and sunbathe.
Via San Carlo provides the opposite direction of Borgo dei Cappuccini, thus leading deeper into the original core of the neighborhood Borgo and towards the harbour of Livorno.status
VIA DEGLI ASILI
The wall found on Via degli Asili is completing the access to Via dei Carrozzeri.
It’s surface is a littler smaller then the other walls, but not of lesser importance. The wall stretches out further sideways, will remaining relatively low in height.
An ideal situation for a landscape orientated work of art. On the right side the wall touches the mural being realised in Via dei Carrozzeri, aiming to make a contrast to the other opera.
The mural can be found on a passage way on the side of Via degli Asili which is founded in 1870 when private family property was converted to housing blocks. Closeby a number of interesting buildings can be found, dating back to origin of the name of the street, being 2 kindergardens, one for boys, one for girls.
As a matter of fact, the kindergartens still remain, together with a building which looks much like the White House, which hosts a variety of cultural associations.status
BOSCO DEI CAPPUCCINI
Il progetto per il Bosco dei cappuccini di Via Cecconi, a due passi dal centro città, fa parte di una visione di riqualificazione urbana di questa piccola oasi cittadina.
La valorizzazione di questo patrimonio di biodiversità è, non solo auspicabile, ma necessaria in previsione anche di una città più eco-sostenibile e più attenta alla causa ambientale. L’obiettivo è quindi quello di creare un murales a tematica ambientale all’ingresso del parco, di installare delle casette per uccelli coinvolgendo i bambini e i ragazzi delle scuole primarie e superiori del quartiere e della città assieme al sostegno della Lipu e dello Studio Bonsai Livorno per rendere così questa area verde un vero e proprio bosco didattico aperto a tutta la cittadinanza.
