Simone Fugazzotto, international artist famous for his paintings with monkeys, realized his Trittico during last Final of Coppa Italia in May.
"With this trio of paintings I would like to show that we are all the same race - Simone Fugazzotto said -, infact when Lega Serie A commissioned a work against racism last May I immediately thought to paint a western monkey, an asian monkey and a black monkey, because I would like to change people's perceptions by my work. My paintings fully reflects the values of fair play and tolerance, I use monkeys as a metaphor for human beings because the colour of our skin is not important".
"Simone created these works some months ago - explained Luigi De Siervo, Lega Serie A CEO -, we want to fight any form of prejudice and we know racism is an endemic and complex problem. We will face it on three fronts, cultural, asking famous artist to make their contribution like Simone did last spring, sporting, thanks to initiatives together with clubs and players and also repressive with Police and Government collaboration".
