The seventh edition of the Borgo Universo festival was the culmination of a work of rediscovery and a new opportunity to tell, with the tools of art and science, the history of a country and its transformation. In addition to the three new walls of Laika, Vhils and Palval, the days of the festival were animated by many protagonists, guests, events and visitors.
the open-air museum
Borgo Universo was born in 2017 as a festival of Street Art and astronomy, with the intent to tell, through street art, the history of the country and its unique contact with the cosm.
Every year since then new artists of international fame have been invited to paint new stories and visions on the walls, giving life to what we now call a "open-air museum" spread across the streets of the town, always open and open to visitors, which today houses 40 murals, sculptures and installations, and which continues to be enriched with more.

Borgo Universo nasce nel 2017 come un festival di Street Art e astronomia, con l’intento di raccontare, attraverso l’arte in strada, la storia del paese e il suo contatto unico con il cosmo. Da allora ogni anno nuovi artisti di fama internazionale sono stati ospitati per dipingere nuove storie e visioni sui muri, dando vita a quello che oggi chiamiamo un “museo a cielo aperto” diffuso tra le strade del paese, sempre aperto e visitabile, che ospita ad oggi 40 murales, sculture e installazioni, e che continua ad arricchirsi sempre di più.
look to the sky
This peculiar dialogue with the universe was born thanks to Filippo Angelitti, an astronomer born in Aielli in 1856, and continues today inside the Torre delle Stelle, which houses a museum of sky and a astronomical observatory</span .
Borgo Universo organizza tour fra i Mural di Aielli in Abruzzo (AQ).
Un’esperienza unica da provare.
Every weekend it will be possible to observe, get to know and understand the art spread along the streets of the village, with the help of local guides.
It is also possible to visit the #Torredellestelle in Aielli, participate in astronomical observations and many extra activities.
