Yup, that’s what kids need to help them learn their ABC’s – a mural that combines a poem inside a hybrid of flamingo, stork, crane, heron, and cormorant.
Also, it is good to have smaller animals carrying letters across the wall to the door one at a time.

The mural is in Roccavignale, a small village in the mountain between Piedmonte and Liguria with 750 inhabitants and hosts 20 migrants. Like many Street Artists these days, immigration is a theme that has captured Opiemme’s attention and has always been in love with the written word, with the the majority of her works spread across Italy.The outlines of this multi-bird body contain a poem about migration outside the main entrance of this Kindergarden/nursery school in Fenigruottero Cirogna,
“I am a migrant, I don’t have a nation, I don’t feel borders.
I follow the moon, I live between sky and lands, between trees and stars”
The mural is part of a public poetry project called L’Aperto and is courtesy of Comune di Roccavignale, Sv (Italy)
