Alice Pasquini – Street Enhancements

One of the most wonderful things about staying in the San Lorenzo area of Rome was the amazing street art and “graffiti” that I did not expect to see so much of. Terrific stuff!

I discovered later that it was painted by Alice Pasquini.

She transformed a fantastic wall  on Via dei Sabelli with a series of images.  The past few years I have visited this wall and the art is always slightly different.  I look forward to seeing this wall again soon and hope that Alice will still be the featured artist there.
