Martin Luther King is winking for a reason. He’s the first of seven superhumans by street artist Lediesis to appear on Florence’s walls as part of the #ilmomentoèadesso (the time is now) solidarity campaign from Fondazione Il Cuore, in partnership with supermarket chain Unicoop Firenze.





The first 20 people to photograph the figures, tagging them with #ilmomentoèadesso on Instagram and Facebook will be entitled to a digital copy of the artwork and a limited-edition postcard. (You can find Martin Luther King in via de’ Cerretani.)
