June 19 2024

“Innesto” is the mural created by the street artist Nian in Piazza Costituzione in San Donnino, a district of Campi Bisenzio, inaugurated on June 17, 2024. This project is the result of a collaboration between the Municipality of Campi Bisenzio and Street Levels Gallery, with financial support from the Regional Council of Tuscany as part of the Public Call “Initiatives for social, cultural promotion, and aggregation aimed at the new generations.”

The sensitive yet receptive artist, Nian, chose for the painting’s subject two mighty pines entwined in one of the artist’s typical embraces: long, sinuous, and meaningful. The pine is originally an Asian species, which migrated and settled in distant places millions of years ago.Nian emphasizes that biodiversity inherently reveals stories of migration and integration, showcasing ancient and universal “roots”. This natural example provides a path for us to follow.

Directly overlooking Piazza della Costituzione, the two majestic pines, which in the italian collective imagination have become an evocative symbol, soar along the entire perimeter of the wall, creating an unmistakable connection between human beings and nature.

In “Innesto,” Nian explores the relationship between nature and human society, emphasizing the importance of legislation that maintains the balance between these two necessary and parallel realities.

The articles of the Italian Constitution that inspired and motivated the work are Art. 3, stating the protection of human dignity, and Art. 9, dedicated to the respect of the environment and its biodiversity. Nian’s mural serves as an invitation to open a dialogue with the community on the themes of interconnection between laws “in the interest of future generations” (Art. 9).

Nian decided to use a shrub and not a recognizable human figure to speak to us of dignity and collective well-being, an ultimate goal to be achieved through widespread social interest.
