Roman Street Poetry

"poetry is near to vital truth than history." - Plato

Eyesore to some, destruction to others--truth to those who see them everyday, written on the crumbling edifices of history. 

 In San Lorenzo district

 The political graffiti lining the walls of the city

"Work door to door" on an abandoned door by Via Giolitti 

 "I love you from here to the end of the world...and from there, to infinity" - along the banks of the Tiber, by Isola Tiberna

"A blank page is a poem unseen" - towards the Vatican
