ITALIA CARGO moved Rosa Parks’ House from New York to Napoli, 27.08.2020
Italia Cargo carried out its last special transport: Rosa Parks’ House from New York to Naples.
The house of the renowned civil rights activist, disassembled in two containers, was shipped by sea along 14000 km and it is arrived in Piazza del Plebiscito to be assembled and exposed in the Court of Palazzo Reale. “Almost Home – The Rosa Parks House Project” of the artist Ryan Mendoza is realized thanks to the commitment of the Campania Region and Morra Greco Foundation, not to forget the memory, the engagement and the legacy of Rosa Parks.
The wooden house was rescued for 500$, when it was about to be destroyed, and rebuilt in Mendoza’s house garden in Berlin. A few months later, the house was again moved and exhibited in Providence – USA and finally, in August 27th it has come to Naples, where it will be exposed from September 15th until December 31st 2020.
