Let's start from a spectacular and unusual place to find a mural: a marble quarry! Here, we find the spectacular “David looking at the moon”, located in a very popular destination that can also be reached on foot along the paths that start from the villages of Colonnata, Vergheto, and Casette.
Created by the Brazilian artist Eduardo Kobra in 2017, the mural is a tribute to Michelangelo Buonarroti, and is located right inside the place where, over five hundred years ago, the great master extracted Bianco P marble for his most famous sculptures including the David, located today in the Galleria dell'Accademia in Florence, and the famous Pietà exhibited in Saint Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.
The work by Kobra is a mural of very large proportions, over ten meters by ten, standing out against the white marble of the quarry, and surrounded by the extraordinary landscape of the Apuan Alps overlooking the sea and the city of Carrara. The subject represented is the famous David whose face and hand can be seen, reinterpreted in multicolours with geometric designs that are representative of the artist's style.
