Alice Pasquini in Quadraro
A few weeks ago I stopped by the Quadraro neighborhood to photograph Alice Pasquini while she was painting a wall for the M.U.Ro project. Aside from the old man who stopped by to yell at her for not painting enough “Italians” on the wall, to which I asked myself “Why can’t these faces she painted be Italian?” the day was a pleasant one. As often happens, friends swing by, beers are drunk, and you chat and photograph while watching the work take place. The wall is located on a tiny street that cars were arriving at around a curve at breakneck speed. Every once in awhile people would honk and shout their appreciation of the work.
