The sculpture was exhibited for the first time at the Foyer della Musica of Renzo piano in Rome.

In this urban context the name of the work was “the Muretto”, it was a sculpture that symbolises a brick wall with its romance (see the poetics of the street). Later on, the work was installed in a roundabout in the city of Bologna, to liven up the place and give it some appeal. The installation however, took place illegally, at night, using polyurethane fixative glues (ie for construction). The act of the illegal installation was also filmed as an artistic performance.

A metal plate engraved with the words “The installation of the work was made possible by the City authorities and the artist Dado Alessandro Ferri et al. “ simulates an official permit with the City of Bologna (fake!). The permission is false, but the names of the artist are true and the mixture of these two components attest to the veracity of the illegality that becomes the seal of the work transforming its meaning. Remained in the roundabout for a couple of months, the work was then exhibited in Sassuolo not as a sculpture, however specifically for its illegality taking the name of “The Wall of Crime” Currently the work “The Wall of Crime” was acquired by the municipality of Sassuolo and will be installed in the public park “The Berlin Wall”. The work has made a path reaching its saturation. I speak of saturation , in this case, because the initial idea of the wall has been developed in all its possibilities: from the legality of sculpture as an object, to the illegality of an illegal installation, and then be officially exposed due to its  abusiveness. With this last step we celebrate and realise that in a particular union, always sought by me, between the road and art.
