The suburb of Tor Marancia has become colourful thanks to Big City Life, a public art project undertaken with a view to urban, cultural and social renewal, which ran from 8 January until 27 February. Twenty artists from different countries met up with the residents in the suburb's housing project, and created twenty impressive mural paintings on the sides of eleven buildings in the area around number 63 Via di Tor Marancia. The event was organised by Francesca Mezzano and curated by Stefano S. Antonelli in conjunction with Gianluca Marziani for the 999Contemporary cultural association, with the support of the Office for Culture, Creativity, Artistic Promotions and Tourism - Department of Culture for Rome Capital, through a public notice "Creative Rome", and by the Roma-Arte-Musei Foundation, under the auspices of Rome Capital Municipality Rome VIII. The event was implemented in conjunction with Ater di Roma Capitale and Atac. The website went on-line from 6 February, affording viewers the opportunity to view only some of the works that are visible from the street. An on-site visit is needed to appreciate them all.
