We continue the coverage of this year’s amazing ALT!rove festival with two new murals by Italian artist 108 painted in Catanzaro, Italy.
The second mural (Above), was painted at Lido’s ex-marketplace and titled In The Kingdom of the Phaeacian and pays homage to the legendary of the Phaeacian from Homer’s Odyssey whilst the second one, actually the first one he painted, is shown below.

The building where the mural above was painted recalls according to a press release “the geometry and structure of an ancient greek temple” being for years a social engine and reference point for Catanzaro’s citizens. The property has earlier been part of the festival raising this year a debate on whether it should be preserved (and become a monument dedicated to Italian abstract urban art) or not.

For the second mural keep scrolling down, you won’t be disappointed.

108 painted a second mural, actually his first for the festival. Another beautiful and poetic expression of his art.
