STREET ART AND GRAFFITI, BORN IN THE UNITED STATES AS EXPRESSIVE FORMS OF REBELLION, HAVE NOW CONQUERED THE WORLD AND EVEN THE WALLS OF FLORENCE.
Florence and its citizens are so proud to attract thousands of tourists to look at the "masterpieces of Renaissance.” Sometimes it is forgotten that art is evolution and under the shade of Brunelleschi's Dome there's still a world in turmoil: the one of young gifted street-artists.
Recently a new generation of artists has emerged, starting a cultural dialogue on the walls of the city. Their purpose is to bring art close to the everyday life of the citizens, spread new ideas, raise awareness, and inspire hope.
The aim of this tour is to establish a genuine dialogue between past and present. We will look at Florence from a different point of view: a source of inspiration and a beautiful canvas for contemporary graffiti.
During our walk through the city we will explore the main squares as Santa Maria Novella, Piazza della Signoria, and Piazza Pitti, and we will lead you through some streets, often missed by tourists, to discover together some hidden corners filled with unexpected works of art.
Our guide will share his knowledge about the history, origins, and motivations of the heroes of the street-art phenomenon. Starting from the alleys and corners where the works are visible, then taking you to the studios and galleries where urban art is made and showcased.
EACH ARTIST HAS ITS OWN STYLE AND ONCE YOU KNOW WHAT TO LOOK FOR, YOU’LL START SPOTTING THEM ALL OVER THE CITY. ARE YOU CURIOUS?
