The Urban Flying Opera project, held in Turin, Italy, consisted in collecting small illustrations from the artistic community via an application and then selecting a number of them to paint on a 14x12-meter wall in the empty shell of an old Iveco truck manufacturing factory. Four drones from Tsuru Robotics, partner in the project, painted the drawings during a 2-day event. A safety net was installed a few meters from the wall to avoid any accident involving spectators. One readily imagines how vandals could use this technique to reach previously inaccessible walls.
