|durex tropic tower|
there´s nothing more i can explain better than the nothing. the durex tropic tower, definitely gentrification, but definitely sicilian gentrification of nothing. maybe the reason why i´m still here, are this kind of magic moments in a dark square at palermo, the off city in europe. at the end good things are working like everywhere. in the last couple of months an anonym black sunglasses mister asked, asked and asked me what i can do on the worst palace covered since 2,5 years with true sicilian cement in the square of concrete and clay. impossible, because till one week ago my right arm was defect for a long time. who cares if the anonym mister loves his own city and he promised seriously that the technic money for me isn´t a problem? but my motivation wasn´t good enough?
anyway the morning of the dicembre 3th was one of this days at the piazza garraffello where you have to be fast like in a videogame. i went down to the bancomat too late, like always, and an italian group guided from a young man mauro filippo was waiting for me without appointment, while behind me an other private group of men with black sunglasses on a crane installed the new LED star of christmas. i explained the italian group why i´m not a street artist and thats why some of them bought the palermo icons booklets to see any pictures of mine for understanding why i´m not and the other pieces of street arts around in the low square even yes. and sure for free. after the deal i gave the cash which i earned to the leader with the black sunglasses of the group with the black sunglasses. they took me from the LED star of christmas directly up to the worst palace to make it beautiful. i needed 30 minutes for the beauty. when i looked down to the people in the square, i saw all of them were lookin´ up to me with black sunglasses. costanza at the bancomat with black sunglasses. i saw the black sunglasses mister who smiled. in this day the sun was not shining in the dark square of nobody.
