In 1989, anthropology student Piergiorgio Castellani bumped into Keith Haring while on vacation in New York City. The famously approachable Haring invited Castellani to visit his studio, and there they hatched a plan for a mural on a church wall in Pisa.
Haring usually finished murals in a day but this one took four days, with the aid of students and a local paint company that provided free materials. The piece is among the artist’s last public works before his death from AIDS in 1990.
