Hyuro just returned from Southern Italy where she painted a new piece for the latest edition of Willoke Street Art Festival.

This wall is located in the Piazza Municipio of Monteleone di Puglia in Italy.
The morning of August 23, 1942 in this same square came the first popular uprising against the fascist regime. Hundreds of women took over the streets to protest against food restrictions. Women, children and elderly were arrested by the fascist authorities, many of the detainees remained in prison for fourteen months.

This pieces talks about the role occupied by these women during periods of war, about the care they provided their households, families and lands. An important role that was largely silenced throughout history.

Take a look at more images below and keep checking back with us to discover more updates from the streets of Italy.
