Opera Viva Barriera di Milano, the Billboard, is an urban art project which adds meaning to the concept of public art because of the use of the pre-existing in conceiving the work of art. In this specific case a municipal space for public billboards ( cimasa 50530) of 6x3m in Turin in Piazza Bottesini (Barriera di Milano, a multi-ethnic Turin district) is performed by national and international artists throughout the year.

In 2013 began Flashback is Opera Viva (Flashback is a living artwork) by the artist Alessandro Bulgini in the belief that art is immortal and therefore artworks are always alive; however, the Opera Viva is also the submerged part of the hull and therefore represents the submerged, all that is invisible, all the peripheries, mental and physical. This is how the project created to connect the inside and the outside, the submerged and the emerged, the visible and the invisible, the center and the suburbs, in 2015 turns into an urban art project: Opera Viva Barriera di Milano, the Billboard.

The project develops around a precise idea of ​​the relationship between art and public space, and of the function of an artwork within a context and an urban community. Through this operation that lasts all year, Flashback connects different areas of the city of Turin and different time zones (the ancient, the modern, the contemporary in its making): in the belief that art must come out of institutional spaces, go down the street, go into reality, move constantly in it, integrate into the dimension of daily existence.

On the occasion of the art fair, the images of the posters, together with all the fragments of life collected, are brought together in a single exhibition for this window open to the world and for the world.
