· Kids' Guernica Paintings about the Olympic Truce
The Olympic Truce - Genoa (Italy), 8-9 June
· Themes and subject
The painting represents, through the
art, the themes discussed during the European Forum
about Olympic Truce. These themes come out in the
proposal for the Resolution for the observance of the
Olympic Truce during the Olympic Winter Games in Turin
Painters want to transmit with
colours a lot of messages, such as the will to
interplay, to guarantee the rebirth of international
closed dialogues and the desire to guarantee the same
dignity to Olympic and Paralympic athletes.
The canvas has in the centre the
Olympic Truce theme, that release shine of light and
heat, that going to light a mix of coloured persons,
painted around the same shapes of workshop’s
participants. The idea to communicate Truce with their
bodies, in fact is born from the word ekecheiria, from
Greek “to hand up”.
Another theme connected to Olympic
Truce is to compare Olympic and Paralympic Games. This
is reflected in the presence of a youth who, in spite of
his disability, participates like everybody at the great
message of peace and hope communicated by sport.
