concept

Born from the idea of the artist Nello Petrucci : POMPEI STREET FESTIVAL 

An element of cultural dynamism, social awareness, tourist and socioeconomic strategy of growth for the city of Pompei.  The street became a starting point to facilitate the encounter between the public and art, fielding the expressiveness of artists, musicians, and filmmakers through installations, meetings, workshops, seminars, live music, performances, and film reviews.

  The festival offers a new way of experiencing the city through the different forms of art. Art is used as a tool for change to raise awareness and make everyone acquainted with the fact that every popular artistic movement and, in particular, street art (a phenomenon that is already trendy in many cities around the world), can stimulate the desire for improvement and reflection. The festival wants to shake the consciousness of the new generations regarding environmental and social problems using painting, music and cinema as the main tools to interact with the social fabric of the territory, opening a new path for change. During the days of the festival, the streets of the city became a real „Open-air Museum”, creating a new way of evolving tourism that made the city of Pompei, become a strong cultural center. The city must continue to increasingly become a destination for fans of the explosive contemporary form of street art. This new perspective will aim in future editions to make the places of periphery known as well. The goal is to evolve the „Street Art Tour” in the city of Pompei, in future years, generating interest and tourist development.
