Three girls enjoying some music and hanging out together

Rome is one of the most interesting destinations for street art. While the RomeHello shares some interesting Murals made by artists from around the globe, the range of work in the capital is ever growing and we’ll show you where to find them

The excitement around street art in Rome has received such international attention that the city of Rome recently released a map of street art and some fantastic itineraries guiding visitors through their quest to find the most exhilarating art pieces scattered throughout the city, their slogan reading: Change perspective. The Street is your new museum.

It is the first Italian city home to an influx of international artists such as Clemes Behr, Herbert Baglione, MOMO, and many Italian artists, more specifically Romans such as Alice Pasquini, Sten Lex, Augustine Lacurci, Jerico and Hitnes.

MURO | Urban Art Museum of Rome

The most famous of the street art tour experiences that you can have here in Rome is in the Quadraro neighbourhood

This working-class neighbourhood gets all of its attention and visits thanks to MURO, the open air, free access Urban Art Museum of Rome. You can start your walking tour on Via dei Lentuli, where Diavù has painted Art Pollinates Quadraro. Another politically strong work here is the Nido di Vespe, Lucamaleonte that takes into account the German blitz that was conducted in April of 1944. One of the few works by a female artist Gio Pistone is painted over the entrance of the tunnel, a monster that guards the entrance, which separates Quadraro from the adjoining district. The tunnel’s exit is painted by Mr.Thoms and depicts a gigantic mouth that sucks in everything around it. There is a larger corner wall painted by Jim Avignon, the Berlin/New York-based artist and last but not least at the end of the tour you can make your way to the most popular and famous piece in MURO which is the work of Ron English entitled Temper Tot/Baby Hulk.
