Product Description

The book talks about graffiti writing, or more simply, writing. About tags, sprays, streets and letters. With the photographs and words of its protagonists, it tells the birth and evolution of this phenomenon in Italy, how a handful of kids changed the face of our cities forever. All it took was minimal resources, a lot of perseverance and a fair dose of style. Signatures appear on the ground, on lamp posts, on tall buildings, in the tunnels of the metro and on public transport. They are the triumph of overbearing individualism, a reaction to the city itself that tends to dissolve the individual.

Il libro parla di graffiti writing, o semplicemente di writing. Di nomi, spray, strade e lettere. Con le fotografie e le parole dei suoi protagonisti racconta la nascita e l’evoluzione del fenomeno in Italia, di come una manciata di ragazzi ha cambiato per sempre il volto delle nostre città. Sono bastati pochi mezzi, tanta perseveranza e una buona dose di stile. Le firme appaiono per terra, sui pali della luce, sui palazzi più alti, nei tunnel del metrò e sui mezzi pubblici. Sono il trionfo dell’individualismo prepotente, una reazione alla città stessa che tende a dissolvere il singolo.
