The first mural in Orgosolo is carried out in 1969 by Dionisio, an anarchist theater company in Milan. She questioned: "What is the role of the island in the Italian government's policy?” After the idea of mural spread into this small village, a local teacher, Francesco Del Casino, played an important role. The early works was carried out by his students. Later on, more experienced workers took the job, making the murals more elaborate both in the style and in the content. Francesco Del Casino will be the instigator of most paintings of the village of Orgosolo. One of his major motivations was to get students involved in politics. Therefore, murals were featured by the oppression of Nazism, struggling for liberation, unemployment ratio and education problem. Even though many kinds of topics were introduced, political events are still the major topics of the mural.
