Looks like Italian street sensation Blu has arrived in Grottaglia for this year’s Fame Festival. Like last year, the artist decided to take aim at some local political issues with this large mural. One of the issues of contention with residents of the small town are the special waste dumps that are being built there without their input or permission. This piece cleverly inserts some local imagery with the olive trees that are prevalent in the area and the signature ceramic dishes that are produced in the town.
