Trieste(IT). Since October 2014 a spontaneous movement of concerned citizens started aggregating and coordinating through a facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Salviamo-la-scritta-La-verità-è-rivoluzionaria-333940436788009/) to save the last piece of art on the wall of the former mental hospital, testament of the revolution brought in the treating of mental issues brought upon in these premises by Franco Basaglia in the seventies. The movement gathered in the former mental hospital demonstrating the attachment and commitment to save the writing with impromptu lectures and performances. 
After growing social interest and local media coverage the government agency owning the building decided for a conservative renovation of the building and the writing. Also, an art display celebrating the author, artist and mental patient Ugo Guarino, has been sponsored in spring 2015.
The main influencers of the movement have been Elisa Biagi(artist and editor),Fulvio Tomizza(writer) and Erika Cei (photographer)
