The mural dedicated to Federica Pellegrini at the Aquaniene has been unveiled. A work of the multitasking artist Vanni Mangoni, former swimmer, 17 meters by 7 meters high entitled ‘Divine Dimension’. The work portrays one of the symbolic images of the ‘Divina’, the plunge into the world record. “I wanted a vibrant painting,” said the artist. “I want to say thanks to the Aniene family for the support, for the trust for this work, the crazy idea of this mural with a 3 cm brush. Thanks to Federica for the joys and emotions from a sporting and human point of view”, he explained Vanni Mangoni during the presentation of the work, where the face of the champion is not portrayed to symbolize all the champions of the Aniene.
Surprised and happy Federica Pellegrini. “Thanks from the bottom of my heart. I thought it was a smaller thing, thanks to Vanni, to the Aniene which has been my family for 14 years.

The president of Coni, Giovanni Malagò, was also very satisfied. “I am very happy with this initiative. I saw this blank wall and so we thought of doing this beautiful art project with Vanni.
