Street Art Silos
Street Art Silos are the modern way to get in touch with the ancient myths and legends of Sicily and Catania. Eight international artists immortalized with their artwork the most famous mythological creatures in the surface of silos in the port of Catania. The artists that contributed to this meaningful work of art are:
OKUDA with his work called “La bella di Bellini” honoured the famous catanese composer Vincenzo Bellini;

MICROBO from Italy with the artwork “Il moto perpetuo di Scilla e Cariddi” representsed an infinite twine of vortex;
