From 11 July to 24 September, in fact, an invasion of picturesque and imaginative plastic animals scattered throughout the area are set to shed light on the importance of nature and respect for the environment. The term cracking refers to the technique of chemically decomposing plastic, which allows it to be reused as a raw material to create new forms of art, rescuing plastic from environmentally toxic destruction by giving it new life, and creating an entirely new aesthetic language. The artworks of the Cracking Art movement include sculptures, installations, performances and ecological and colourful architectural projects.
