1 – OSTIENSE
Near the famous Pyramid Cestia, between the streets of the busy and noisy Testaccio quarter we will meet some giants of street art! The famous work of Blu in via del Porto Fluviale, the wall of fame of Jb Rock and the optical illusion of the works of the very “technical” Sten and Lex are just some of the masterpieces that will leave you breathless.
To this day Ostiense remains the most famous of the districts enhanced by street art and is still the scene of the international OUTDOOR festival every year.
2 – QUADRARO
In 2010, thanks to the work of the artist DIAVù, the Mu.ro project took off! The team leaded by David Vecchiato has continued for years to be the protagonist of new works that animates every corner of the neighborhood.
Difficult to keep track of the walls and the artists who have come to life thanks to Mu.ro but we are talking about real celebrities: the unmissable Hulk by Ron English, the fawn by Gary Baseman, the famous Esodati of Maupal. We will explore tunnels and alleyways, private houses and public buildings by reconstructing the history of a neighborhood that struggles to conserve its memory.
3 – TORPIGNATTARA
Besides the Quadraro and Ostiense, among the “unavoidable” areas to tell the heart of street art in the city there are also Pigneto and the multiethnic Torpignattara. Our experts will organize the walk according to your tastes, age and interest!
Besides the “quintessential” street art areas of Quadraro and Ostiense, Pigneto and the multi-ethnic Torpignattara are also inspiring neighborhoods that you will not want to miss! Thanks to the synergy between local galleries and dynamic artists like Etam Cru, Sten and Lex, the Atlas and many others, Romans can now add a new wave of contemporary art to all its archaeological and historical treasures!
