For the 2016 edition Festiwall confirms the concept to link five artists to five walls, scattering interventions in a well defined area of Ragusa.

The district, commonly called “Wild” area, is home to several sports facilities of the city but which still has strong popular generated from construction fracture. The area has been affected in the 80s by an intense construction activity that has drawn a controversial urban landscape dotted with large residential buildings. The so-called E. R. P. (Public Housing) has for years been synonymous with “urban decay” and an example of suburban little used in the city’s events.
