The project means to propose an inconvenient and new parallelism between art and the practice of boxing, defining boxing as one of the places of the myth's production just as literature and arts.

Gabriele Tinti curated "Universal Embassy", "Art Mama" and "Memorial" for the fifth, sixth and seventh editions respectively of the Festival Internazionale della Fotografia di Roma.
Long obsessed with boxing, he started thinking about all the implications between art and sport with the "All Muscles" project, a series of interviews and investigations for major art, literature and sports magazines. Integral parts of the project were the book "Legendary Hearts" (published by Damiani in 2009, preface by Nino Benvenuti and pictures by Franko B), the recent reading on Arthur Cravan (early twentieth-century poet and boxer) at the Festival della Poesia in Modena, the Box(e) exhibition at the Jerome Zodo Contemporary, for which Tinti took fighting inside an art gallery, and "New York Shots" a collaboration with Howard Schatz and Michael Imperioli for MACRO, Rome.
