    The future of this mural is threatened as of November 2015. The school has covered it and is trying to learn whether it is possible to remove a fresco “for relocation”. Personally, I suspect this is the end of this particular work of art and piece of history. Its future will be in a handful of jpegs, a memory and, in time, not even that.
