This is the first large piece that I painted on a wall, about 9 meters x 4 meters inside my school, the Liceo Classico Manzoni in Milano. Before, the walls were completely ruined since decades and on my proposal the headmaster give me a small amount of money to buy enough paint (at that time, a luxury that I rarely could afford).
The space was high but long and narrow, hence the impossibility of an overall decent photo (which in any case my poor camera would have spoiled). I remember it was Easter, everyone was away for holidays and instead I was locked inside the school to paint: like all normal teenagers at that time…
Graffiti were still a rarity in Milano and at the return from holidays the piece did not fail to surprise everyone.
At least, that’s what I liked to believe.
