San Lorenzo is the grungy, student filled centre of Rome. Europe's most overpopulated university (La Sapienza) is a stones throw and the area is as proudly Roman as it gets. Lately SL has been the centre of a fair bit of wall art, and currently an international street art show is on in the old, abandoned customs buildings in the rail yards. Under the fly pass. I mean does that sell it enough? Perhaps if a few names are dropped?
Some big names (Lady Aiko amongst them); but for this show, seen the same day I went to MAXXI gave me the feeling that something was missing even if it was entirely visual. it needed sound and life: truth be told I went during the day and was still impressed by the level of some of the works but the empty stages and the makeshift pallets devoid of people made it clear that this is a show to be seen in the company of strangers and in the folds of some raucous music.
