Pigment Workroom is a multidisciplinary studio based in Bari, Italy, working as a laboratory for urban interventions with the intention of uniting inhabitants with artists. A team of five Italian artists has given color to public spaces and private spaces of San Pio, which over time, have been impoverished. Bari was built during the 1950s as an isolated city far from the famous waterfront views visited by tourists from around the world, being sadly notorious for its high rate of organized crime. The aim of this studio is to challenge the cliché that social housing units and their environmental context are not of cultural interest, emphasizing how aesthetics can affect cultural and social conditions.
