Shaping San Francisco | City History Lectures
While squatting a South Park Gulch apartment in the 1990s and experimenting with urban guerrilla art, at some point Argentinian-born artist Mauro Ffortissimo began collecting pianos. He took them apart, pushed them off rooftops, and set one ablaze on the bluffs of Half Moon Bay after a series of sunset performances.
Together, Mauro and Dean Mermell now bring pianos to the streets and gardens of San Francisco.
This event will include an excerpt of Twelve Pianos, a documentary film about California artist Mauro Ffortissimo, and his quest to place a dozen pianos at select locations on the San Mateo coastline for anyone to play.
