“A blank page is an hidden poetry” says Ivan, the italian street-artist and poet; the idea of giving a city a free urban space in which citizens can express themselves in participated actions of self poetry, has been realized for the first time in April 2009 in Florence. Many city have been visited by Ivan and his team Art Kitchen after this first experience, such as Milan, Naples and Verona: the tour is still ongoing. The performance consists of placing a big sheet on a square, and let the people write on it during a whole day. The concept is the one day appropriation of public
squares with a self-managed space without owners and rules, and the artist is one with the participants. In this performance, spectators are not standing in front of the art work, but the active actors of it.
