Alejandro Marmo installed the concept of integration through art as a metaphor of cultural and industrial development. For this, it works with workers and excluded sectors of society.

In the mid-90 created the "Art in the Factory" with the intention of rescuing the industrial backwardness abandoned factories of Buenos Aires. With these materials and with the collaboration of workers dismissed from the production system led to the creation and placement of artworks in public spaces.

Evita's murals are the ultimate expression of this project, realized with the industry as emblematic of what is weathering steel and constructed with the participation of workers. Throughout his career, he worked with residents of Villa 31 and the Ejército de los Andes Fuerte Apache area, with low-income children in the Chaco Province and the Tigre district, among other places.

Internationally, consider art as a universal language capable of building bridges between different cultures, ran scenarios in Latin America, Europe and Asia. Workers worked with the Dominican Republic with illegal Romanian immigrants in Italy and Tokyo centenarians.

He is currently undertaking an integration project in the shantytowns of the Cañada Real de Madrid (Spain). There he worked with Rome (Italy) in the construction of a piece to be located in that community. He also worked on building a theme park in Vienna (Austria) insects

The works resulting from these experiences are deployed in public spaces, precisely because the artist is where they take full extent, while the creators and reinforce the sense of belonging to the artistic work.

This understanding and develop the art aims to evaluate the imaginary world of the common man. This means that those involved in the project believe in themselves to see that what is projected from the imagination can be realized.

The transformation of what beauty is negligible in another concept that governs the work of Alejandro Marmo. The artist has a successful production of sculptures and paintings from waste, industrial backwardness or scrap.
