Graffiti Writing in Italy 1989–2021
It’s a simple game with simple rules; get yourself a tag and write it in an original style, as often as you can, everywhere and anywhere.
The new edition of a lively and powerful essay about graffiti writing – or more simply, writing – about tags, sprays, streets and letters. Alessandro Mininno, who was part of the graffiti scene in Milano in the 1990s, tells the birth and evolution of this phenomenon in Italy, gathering memories and statements by the artists, and recalling the course of the movement, from streets to trains, between illegality and recognition. 150 pages of photographs make of this an invaluable source!
Bilingual English / Italian.
