For many generations in the past, LEGO has been known as a toy for children, but that is not the case anymore! Now it is being used for many different things including aiding in the use of improving motor skills for victims of a stroke and even being used in some works of art as a new medium.
In Bochhignano, Italy, a group of amazing artists have created an innovative project using LEGOs to patch ancient walls.
The actual integrity of structure of the wall is not really dependent upon the toys, but the little LEGOs add enough stability to strengthen the walls considerably.
A group of artists, know as 20 Eventi, have had the ingenuity to create amazing projects that can be viewed in four various small Italian towns.
The artists used small and large LEGOs to design various shapes to be built into tight places where portions of the ancient walls are missing.
The effect is truly amazing.
By adding the LEGOs, the walls have a smooth, continuous appearance, where previously the original wall was deteriorating and looked incomplete.
Also, by adding plastic LEGOs, they have created an incredible wall by combining old and new materials.
This group of people have been storing their old LEGOs in attics and closets since they were children, knowing they were not just for kids, but can also be very useful in many new ways.
20 Eventi has shown the world the new and artistic way of repairing these very old walls using LEGOs.
