What to expect

Rome is not just ancient ruins and Baroque churches: the Eternal City has recently been experiencing a boom of…Street art! Urban artworks are reviving the walls from suburban to popular districts in Rome. These art-works provide a new an opportunity to explore the lesser known corners of this surprising city.

Your guide will take you to little known parts of the city, unknown to the general public, such as “Quadraro” in the south-eastern part of the city, where we can enjoy the early works by David “Daivù” Vecchiato in the Via dei Corneli area, Via dei Lentuli and Largo dei Quintili.

Allow the guide to tell you about the “Mu.Ro” project and together explore the picturesque Ostiense area, formerly an industrial district famous for its striking gasometer (an abandoned gas container).

The Ostiense District project has enabled street artists like Blu to give new life to local buildings with a rainbow of multi-colored faces and Carlos Atoche to create, on the wall, a world of submerged statues. These are just some of the artists that were inspired by the city’s post-industrial atmosphere and gave life to remarkable art works in the Ostiense district where, in fact, the highest concentration of street paintings is to be found in Rome.
