La street art del
Let's start from via Veientana where, as part of the "Hip Hop and spirituality" project, the artist Paolo Colasanti, better known as Gojo, has wisely realized this work, which wants to be a way of contextualizing also to the young members of society, important issues such as those related to the discovery of spirituality, up to the great concepts that represent the ideals of a civilized population such as freedom, autonomy, independence, equality, in addition to the concept of 'beautification' and protection of the environmental context in which we live.

We move to Vigna Clara and precisely to the Liceo Farnesina. Here, thanks to the "Giacomo Vidiri" non-profit organization, the association in memory of the high school student who died after a car accident in 2013, the courtyard of the Farnesina Scientific High School is reborn: a space that has long been neglected and almost completely inaccessible restored by work indefatigable of volunteers and very young members. To frame this long path of decorum and care, the creation of a rare and elaborate mural: the Macro Life by Krayon by a.DNA that brought its pixels to the walls of the Vigna Clara high school.
Macro Life is a magnificent mural, contextualized to perfection in the architecture of the walls on which the artist intervened with geometric shapes and games of transversal lines that harmonically articulate the structure at regular intervals. A visual musical rhythm that perfectly combines with the architectural and natural context: that of the Liceo Musicale.
The pixels of various sizes are calculated to the millimeter to position themselves correctly to form the human cells and the vegetable fibers represented in a macro view, taken from real photos taken under the microscope. Thus Macro Life looks like a tribute to nature, to mathematical perfection that marks the biodiversity and delicate balance that make up the symphony of our lives. Info: www.romatoday.it
Urban regeneration also means that an ex-asylum can become an open-air museum where beauty triumphs over human suffering. This is what happened on the Trionfale, thanks to the street art project "Kaleidoscopio".
A permanent exhibition of paintings made on the walls of the various pavilions created by the writer Maurizio Mequio - aka "Poeta del nulla" - and created by the artists of the "Muracci Nostri" association, with more than thirty works scattered in the spaces of the now discharged hospital.
Each vertical wall, a potential canvas. All to give new light and colors to an area that has been in a state of semi-abandonment for years. The works have various styles and references - from Goya to Schifano to Sophocles, Bacon and Merini - but they are all connected by the red thread of the theme social. Info: www.vignaclarablog.it
