Salò by Zilda
In June 2009 the French artist Zilda hit the streets of Rome with his series of hand painted posters depicting scenes from classic Italian Neo-realist cinema. Since then he’s continued to shun galleries and stay on the streets, making a big impact as well in Naples with more classically figurative posters. (Read a recent interview with the artist here). In late April/ early May the artist hit Rome quickly again with posters recalling scenes from Pasolini’s 1975 film Salò, as well as this pig masked figure which was unfortunately short lived in Porta Maggiore. Luckily, as is often the case with his work, at least one cleverly placed poster has endured, this one within one of the cells formed by the aqueduct that runs along via del Mandrione. Enjoy!
