The alleyways of Trastevere are the veins of Rome. Here, there is always a tavern or craft shop to visit, there are always card games played on street corners, and the exuberant style and culture of the district (now considered the “Historic Centre”) is manifested in its street art.
The street art in Trastevere is much more spontaneous than the rest of the street art throughout Rome, because the historic buildings of the district are considered “cultural heritage” and are therefore protected by architectural constraints that make it very difficult to obtain the necessary authorizations to intervene with large murals.
Perfect playground for small interventions like posters, stickers and stencils. French artist C215 world has visited Rome several times and left his artworks across the city. His works shine the spotlight on ‘characters of the street’ and the ‘overlooked or invisible people in society’ – animals, street kids, smokers, the homeless, refugees, and lovers. His street art pieces are meant to change, degrade, and transform over time. They are designed to be destroyed or forgotten.
This work at the entrance of this sparkling district shows that love conquers all, even during a global pandemic.
