"URBAN ART UNITES", created thanks to the collaboration of some Iranian art galleries, the Nuova Pesa gallery and the "Kill the Pig" association in Rome, pursues a dual objective. On the one hand, to strengthen the cultural ties between Italy and Iran by activating creative collaborations and artistic exchanges in a sector with a strong innovative charge in terms of expressive language. On the other hand, to increase the social awareness of the importance of art and the decorum of urban centers, thus increasing - through a universally accessible and usable art - the collective well-being of urban communities.
