Millo’s Street Art – Street art in Barriera

If you like street art, Torino has some amazing corners you can enjoy.

In Barriera di Milano neighborhood, which by the way, is one of my favorites, you will find several murals from Millo, a street artist from Puglia; his artworks have been exhibited in several cities in Italy, London, Paris and Luxembourg.

Barriera di Milano is not a fancy neighborhood. It has been a historically popular area, but I like it a lot because, despite the usual issues you have in every big city related to the integration of immigrants, here citizens are very active organizing social activities to promote tolerance and integration.

All of Millo’s Murals in Barriera di Milano have one common thread among them; in fact, the whole project is called “Habitat”: there are 13 murals that all represent the relationship between man and the urban fabric.

Almost all of the murals are in black and white with a few colored elements, and all of them have a strong visual impact on the viewer

In all these artworks, the main character is a huge baby in the city which represents the possibility to always be amazed by the things around you.

Here you can download a map with all of them: Millo’s artwork map

My favorite one is in piazza Bottesini 6 — I won’t  tell you more because I don’t want want to spoil too much!
