14 April-21 May. MACRO Testaccio dedicates an exhibition to the Forgotten street art project which involves five Portuguese artists enlivening abandoned or "forgotten" buildings around the Italian capital.
Supported by the embassy of Portugal in Italy, Forgotten began last October with a mural by Add Fuel in Piazza della Marina, in the Flaminio district. It continued with a Frederico Draw mural featuring Pier Paolo Pasolini at the Teatro India site in Ostiense.
Then Bordalo II created a mixed-media mural outside S. Pietro train station, featuring a goat's head made from discarded mechanical parts.
The fourth intervention was by ±MaisMenos± who erected a series of temporary word-play slogans around the capital's recently-closed cinemas.
The exhibition launch coincides with the recent unveiling of Taglio, a large-scale mural at the Guido Reni market in Flaminio by the fifth and final artist Daniel Eime which highlights the closure of food markets in the face of competition from chain stores.
