As reported in the note, having eluded police surveillance and climbing over the double row of nets and barriers, the artist-activist placed the puppet of an Eritrean child in the arms of the journalist’s statue and affixed an explanatory sign: “the monument to In this way, Indro Montanelli is complete – it is written on a white sheet attached to the base – It was not necessary to color the statue, it was enough to add the 12-year-old Eritrean girl on his knees, who was abused as a colonialist soldier “.
The agents intervened, stopping the artist, who was identified, and interrupting “the non-violent performance of civil disobedience”. A few weeks ago the statue had been smeared by a student collective.
