Saints of Periphery: the youth of Naples and Piero Pelù
Santi di Periferia is a project born from a meeting between Piero Pelù and the mayor of Naples Luigi de Magistris in a Calabrian evening, talking about the marginality of the young, recovery of the suburbs and importance of create a common language that engages kids in something constructive. The initiative, which is inspired by a homonymous song by Litfiba, a group of which Piero Pelù was the leader, tells of these riotous and "hungry" of the suburbs and wants to find a language to establish contact. This language can be music and the aim is to stimulate creativity of these guys.
