The monumentality of Haring's design—a caricature straightening the Leaning Tower of Pisa—is not to be underestimated. In 1989, he was invited to Pisa, where he painted his last public mural on the wall of the Church of Sant'Antonio Abate. It was titled Tuttomondo (All the World), and dedicated to universal peace—it's a bright and lively scene, full of his winsome characters dancing, hula-hooping, taking on animal forms, or donning angel wings. He died only a few months later of AIDS, but the mural stands proud to this day, and has become a popular tourist destination. This poster serves as an announcement of the work—but it's also an important marker of the artist's last inspired days.
