Scampia, north suburbs of Naples. In 1983 Felice Pignataro, muralist, creative, artist at the service of the “lasts”, of those with no voice promotes, with Gridas, a block carnival, born to provide an identity to the progressive urbanization of the peripheral countryside. After more than 30 years, Scampia Carnival Parade still remains a fixture, a collective moment of choral fight for the many souls flourished during the years, who enrich it with significance. A seed sprouted also in other city blocks, which inspired the coordination between various “social carnivals”, ideally connecting their Parades.

The aim is to mix the allegorical irony of Carnival, together with daily fights for the social redemption of these areas.
