Tour street art San Donato district
Piazza XX settembre: meeting point
Along the outside walls of the bus station we learn about an important poster art organization: CHEAP, an independent project that promotes street art as a tool for surveying the territory. CHEAP selects guest artists to create site-specific work articulated throughout Bologna’s urban and suburban landscape.
Via Zago: Hall of Fame
From the city centre we pass the Stalingrado bridge towards San Donato district. Via Zago is full of street art and writing pieces, an excellent opportunity to learn more about the local scene and its protagonists.
Memories of Blu
The street artist Blu is known all over the world but it’s in Bologna its work presented an active political view within the city’s urban landscape. In 2016 he decided to paint over its own murals, taking a stand against a city that scrubs off graffiti but celebrates street art in galleries.
An important project dedicated to the writing and street art scene, realized by the Municipality in 2012. 13 walls for 13 world-renowned artists, some of whom worked in this area of the city (Phase 2, Dado, Honet).

HISTORICAL CENTRE AND 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.
