Street art tour: historical centre & university district

Walking through the old town we learn how walls can have a voice: they tell us past and present stories, they make us reflect and wonder and they reveal us a bit of Bologna's most underground identity. The often politically motivated pieces can only be fully appreciated when their motivations and context is understood. The tour takes place mainly in the university area where we discover different projects of revitalization, hidden alleys, pieces of political and social criticism and the controversies behind this worldwide known and discussed form of art.

At the centre of the university area, the walls of Via Zamboni and Piazza Verdi have always been the expression of the political and social struggles of the city, in a costant dialogue between past and present.
