Piet Mondrian mural, Colombo Institute, Livorno
Osvaldo Cavandoli mural, Colombo Institute, Livorno
Keith Haring mural, Colombo Institute, Livorno

Very cool! When my son was in High School he got to work with Keith Haring on a wall murals in December 1986 in Phoenix,Arizona. Keith was quite an interesting fellow.
