My name is Sara and I’m an urban art lover, born and raised in Rome. I founded Rovescio three years ago, a no-profit cultural organization committed to promoting and spreading the culture of street art. We are also insiders of the Roman urban art scene supporting local and international street artists. With Flaminia, Arianna e Roberta, who joined me in driving the tours, we share everyday knowledge and passion for street art. And that’s the true secret: we love it!

Where you'll be
We’ll gather in the heart of Testaccio, an authentic roman neighborhood. From there we will begin our journey across the streets of the Ostiense Street Art District up to the historic area of Garbatella. The history of these places was a source of inspiration for many artists, who then decided to leave their mark here. And now it's easy to see how art gave new life and broader horizons to the urban environment of this neighborhood.
