ROME - first prize
MARIO is a wall, but not like everyone else. He is different. Mario has a split personality, apparently closed to the outside but very cozy with those who pass through him. Mario timidly lets the visitors look inside, write, scratch and even touch, all things that a normal wall definetly can’t stand! He welcomes you in his inner space, protecting you from noise and bad weather, but he also lets you do what you want: eat, read a book, study, rest, exhibit, perform, act. Mario is well known by all the inhabitants of the neighborhood crossing through it or walking by, so much that he earned a nickname: if you ask for MARIOerMURO, everyone will tell you where to find him.
