"Down with grey!"

The “School of Painting” is one of the activities which the disabled attend in the House of Pulcinella. Each person expresses his or her own talent and skills and finds a way to establish an artistic technique which is most congenial.

Down with grey!

Since 1995 numerous exhibitions have been organised entitled “Down with Grey”.

The 2001 edition in Rome involved about 500 disabled Roman artists.

Many artists have put those pictures up for sale so as to support the hospital “Comunità di Sant’ Egidio” in Bissau, Guinea Bissau.
