Amir Ra, creator and founder of the Origines project aimed at promoting the artistic talent of Italian children of the so-called "second generation", will reinterpret in a contemporary key the famous painting by Giuseppe Pellizza da Volpedo "Il Quarto Stato", staging, instead of workers, children, girls, boys of different ages belonging to different cultures, Italian and not.
The blue sky that in the famous work of Pellizza da Volpedo stands out above the workers, in Amir Ra's transposition will be represented by the flag of UNICEF, an organization that promotes and protects the health, survival, development and rights of children and adolescents in 190 countries around the world.
The exhibition has been realized in collaboration with the creative hub Mr. Moody in the figure of Creative Producer Luca Rochira and Executive Producer Lucia Cianfarani.

Thanks also to Sabatini Fotografia and the photographic prints of Graphicscalve.
