I thought it was some viral campaing from a furniture company.
So I asked the barman where sometimes I stop for a coffee the story behind it.
Few months ago the street committee had collected old chairs from artisans and shops in the area. They gave to the elderly persons, who lived nearby the chairs to be prepared (they had to sand them down to remove the old paint).
Then they gave the chairs to four nearby nursery schools to be repainted by the children. And here are the results.
I’d like to have few of those chairs so badly. Or at least, give me a few names and phone numbers so to hire the little artisans, pardon, designers.
The street San Donato connects Corso Tassoni with Piazza Statuto, in the city centre. You can find handcraft shops, restaurants and nice bars. It’s worth a walk. And if you are tired… well, you know where to sit.
