Aisthesis Number 18 – December 2021

We begin the new year of 2022 with three very contemporary articles.
An old language becomes part of cultural heritage; the eternal beauty of our Constitution; creativity in the provinces with Street Art.
Vito D’Ambrosio enthusiastically narrates the intense history of Article 3 of the Constitution, which stipulates that the principles of freedom and equality are essential for society; a step beyond egalitarianism. More a duty than a right.
Next, Sabina Fontana relates how LIS, the Italian sign language which was officially recognized last May, is also an element which strongly identifies and determines the sense of belonging to the deaf community and to a territory; hence the diversity of signs from one region to another, even from one city to another.
Simonetta Baroni has written a very wide-ranging article dedicated to Street Art, a phenomenon that originated in large urban centres and has now spread to provincial areas. A cross-pollination which, precisely because of its being in an eternal state of becoming (from the first coloured image to the successive superimpositions of new murals), also represents a dialogue with the present.
Federica Bertini and Francesca Colonnelli present their first-hand research and experiences in the provinces.
A topical theme and one which generates an inevitable metamorphosis, not only in the Street Artists but also in the public that sees it.
