Salvini depicted in Rome street art

Sirante strikes again with Salvini mural in Rome.

A street art poster depicting Italy's deputy premier Matteo Salvini as the Penitent St Peter by Baroque master Guercino appeared on the night of 27 September on Via Plauto in the Borgo district of Rome.
Entitled S. Matteo pentito, the work is the latest political mural by anonymous street artist Sirante who gained notoriety in April for his Caravaggesque depiction of Lega leader Salvini playing cards with Forza Italia head Silvio Berlusconi and Movimento 5 Stelle leader Luigi Di Maio. The image was swiftly removed from a wall near the Quirinale where President Mattarella had been holding consultations in an attempt to form a new government.
Sirante was also behind a mural which appeared overnight in Piazza della Madonna dei Monti in June, portraying Salvini as a beggar appealing for a "little bit of your humanity."
Salvini is regularly the subject of controversial street art by other artists, including Tvboy who depicted him kissing Di Maio in a mural removed from Via del Collegio Capranica in central Rome in March.
