Whilst we were in Rome for the Cross the Street exhibition, organised by Drago, we thought we’d arrange a walk and talk with a friend of Global Street Art, Jessica Stewart.
Jessica is the author of Street Art Stories Roma and currently the Alice Pasquini’s Studio Manager.
We walked and talked with Jessica around her neighbourhood of Pigneto, a haven of street art created by artists from all over the world. From paste-ups to tags, to large murals, this area is swarming with amazing pieces!
We spoke to Jessica about the street art scene in Rome, what makes it unique and what changes she has seen over the years. We had to use the fitting backdrop of Alice Pasquini’s reinterpretation of the lovers of Berengo Gardin piece for the interview. Enjoy!
And now for some of the pictures we took whilst walking around Pigneto…
