NECESSE

a new project form SMOE STUDIO

The Latin word “necesse“, in Italian translated as: necessary, indispensable, vital. This is the title of the new SMOE project, a 1300 square meter mural that will be hand painted in Milan, on a large wall inside the public park of the street Via Ludovico di Breme.

The title of the project aims to highlight the changes in our society during the health emergency of the pandemic that hit the world in the first months of 2020. Social, environmental and economic changes that every day placed some professionals and workers in the sector in the forefront which have proven to be fundamental.

The Park:

The park’s garden was restored in 2017 through an initiative of the “Comitato Petrarca” a local association which redeveloped an area degraded by drug dealing and prostitution.
The idea is to complete the interior spaces with a socio-cultural mural, to bring tourism, street-art hunters, art lovers, citizens and curious people, to a space that has been abandoned in the past and also to contribute to a symbolic rebirth of the community.

The wall in its dimensions measures 17 x 70 meters in length.
The realization of the work would also allow further development of a peripheral area of Milan. The piece will be dedicated to the memory of these days from which we still don’t know what to expect.

With the best intentions we also want to leave a testimony to posterity.
