Forgotten Project commissions Rome mural by British artist.
Forgotten Project has unveiled a new Rome mural by the English street artist Lucy McLauchlan outside the abandoned Campo Testaccio, the legendary former football stadium of AS Roma.
Titled Not Forgotten, McLauchlan's black and white mural dialogues with underlying red and yellow colours of the team which once called the stadium home. Forgotten Project commissioned the mural to highlight the conditions of the city's forgotten sport facilities, and recently held a kick-ups competition to unveil the artwork.
From Birmingham, McLauchlan is the second artist involved in this year's Forgotten Project following My Dog Sighs who created a mural outside the Nuovo Regina Margherita hospital in Trastevere.
Forgotten Project was founded in 2015 to enhance Rome’s contemporary architecture through urban art, and after the first edition focused on Portugal, this year it chose the United Kingdom. For details about Forgotten Project see website or Facebook page.
