High Reach For

Street Art

Five world-famous street artists took part at

the “FestiWall 2016” event. Their artworks

renewed the walls of the “Selvaggio” (“wild”)

quarter of Ragusa, Sicily.

To accomplish their works of art, they

were supported by Haulotte aerial work plat-

forms to guarantee workability and safety.

Three weeks of art in the streets, of col-

ours to renew the suburbs and technological

equipment working for common good.

This remarkable feat was achieved also

due to the participation of some of the most renowned

street artist of the planet.

For two weeks, Haulotte platforms helped the street

artists to reach high in the sky and use the city walls as

These features were perfectly matched by Haulotte

machines, supplied by Tecnofly srl of Misterbianco

(Catania), a local Haulotte dealer.

As Caterina Fuina, Tecnofly srl CEO,


“We supplied Haulotte aerial work platforms of

different heights. From a 43-mt telescopic-boom

unit to a 26-mt one, to the 12-mt scissors. Having

to work in an uncomfortable urban environment,

with apartment buildings and blocks that were

very difficult to access, we decided to use self-

propelled platforms, as they are versatile and

easy to operate. It must be underlined that those

machines had to be driven by the artists

themselves. ”

Every so often a complete overhaul of the installation

a sludge processing plant in the Port of Antwerp. In order

to do so the pipeline had to be placed temporarily on

the quay.

A complex task for which SeReAnt counted on their
