In Bassano del Grappa, an urban regeneration project entrusted to street artists

RAME project is the project designed in Bassano del Grappa to redevelop urban areas neglected or forgotten by everyday life.

RAME is the major urban regeneration project entrusted to street artists in Bassano del Grappa.

Ericailcane, among the best known in Italy and Europe, has chosen this space to give life to his latest work: almost two hundred square meters of color depicting a large parade of animals ready to start a protest. The title of the work is Ma l’amor mio non muore, which is inspired by the 1971 book Ma l’amor mio non muore. Origins Documents Strategies of Alternative and Underground Culture in Italy, which collects articles and texts documenting the ideas, projects and intentions of the Sixty-Eight generation.

The RAME project, conceived about two years ago by Bassano resident Andrea Crestani, the initiative’s creative director, has become one of the highest-impact public projects of theBassano Department of Culture. The city’s Urban Center has also joined the project, which has a supporting role in planning the interventions and disseminating the project among the resident population.

The urban art interventions of the RAME project are in line with a general approach for the city of Bassano that sees artistic interventions outside conventional cultural spaces as well, to enhance relationships with public space, particularly the suburbs. It is a clever way to offer new viewpoints to urban areas at risk of degradation, and to add visual and semantic value to glimpses of the cityscape without a particular identity, but which are in effect scenarios that see the daily passage of thousands of citizens moving from one part of the city to another.

During the creation of the mural, numerous people stopped by for comments and, above all, compliments and thanks addressed to the artist for having improved the enjoyment of a passageway that is much frequented but, until now, in a context at risk of degradation as it has been targeted by numerous vandalisms.
Ericailcane’s is the third major streetart intervention carried out in the city, following Pixel Pancho in the back of the Old Hospital and Koes ’ in Via Portici Lunghi.

A fourth artist, Cento Canesio, is at work these days, who will create a mural also on Tabacco Street with a subject inspired by the bicycle.
