New street art project in Rome

Second edition of Rome's Muracci Nostri street art project.

Several streets in the northwest Rome district of Primavalle have been enlivened with murals and installations thanks to the community street art organisation Muracci Nostri.

Now in its second year, the project was financed by an online crowd-funding campaign along with the donations of local residents and associations which raised a total of €3,000.

Muracci Nostri was founded to transform the disadvantaged suburb as well as open it up to visitors and this year's theme was the actor and left-wing political activist Gian Maria Volontè.

The project's founder Maurizio Mequio said the murals included references to terrorism, anarchy, censorship, Palestine, Syria, migrants, and earthquakes.

The works, by artists such as Gomez, La Rouille, Nemos, Solo and Andrea Gandini, can be found in Piazza Clemente XI and the covered market on Via S. Igino Papa, as well as along Via Bartolomei, Via Ascalesi and Via Pietro Bembo. For details see map
