Exploring the contemporary art that colour Rome’s districts
Rome is the cradle of Classicism: history, art and culture radiate from every corner, but it is also a city in full swing, perfectly keeping up with contemporary artistic trends.
Not only museums and galleries, but amazing street art tours allow you to discover the neighbourhoods from another point of view. The selection is so wide that the City has catalogued and designed maps and Apps, so you don’t miss any Roman wall!
In 2015, it became the most colourful area of the Capital. Twenty international artists created 22 murals with each building displaying a theme inspired by an artistic movement (art nouveau, still life, conceptual, etc.).
Known for the ‘gazometro’ and numerous industrial spaces, it was one of the first areas to host street art. The authors are all Italian and include a female artist (Alice). Faces, floral worlds and lunar universes colour many facades that mix with the other buildings in the area, which, in contrast, appear very melancholic.
Known for the historical Porta Portese flea market, street art here was able to fit in and communicate with the past. It is a contemporary language that never forgets who we are and where we come from, like a direct dialogue with the public who buzz through the streets. In fact, the aesthetics of the district’s works are mostly votive but deal with political and satirical themes.
This is where the first open-air museum was born, M.u.r.o – Museum of urban art, with over 20 works created by Italian and international artists. This project aims at elevating a district that historically faced fascism – which is, in fact, the common thread of the whole tour, causing you to reflect and remember.
The area is now full of hipster places, a bit glam but with a rustic soul, and it never neglected its artistic side. In fact, Pasolini, like many other creatives, spent most of his life here. Street art gave life to an urban renewal that emphasises the beauty of the neighbourhood thanks to specialized tours that promote today’s culture.
