In the centre of Sardinia, in the mountainous part of the island, there are lots of villages with a big murales tradition.
Orgosolo is one of the most famous. Murales are in private or public houses around the village , and generally have a strong social or political message. There're around 150 only in Orgosolo.
In this part of Sardinia people are really harsh and direct, with a big sense of honour and  proper rules. It's not a case one of the most important personality of the village is Graziano Mesina, a bandit famous for jailbreaking from prison 22 times (he succeeded 10 times).
