Tour program

A guided tour through murals and graffiti that until recently have been considered an act of vandalism but are now seen as genuine artworks, shattering the grayness and monotony of the city’s routine and transforming the urban spaces in open-air museums.

Your tour guide will lead you through bike lanes to discover the post-industrial Bologna. A fantastic immersion in places and contexts completely off the traditional tourist tracks.

You will have the chance to see the murals of the university district such as the one painted by Luís Gutiérrez in 1988 in Via Zamboni, displaying the history of South America, perfectly immersed in the surrounding historical neighbourhood.

In the central Piazza Azzarita you will stop to admire a collage by Levalet called The Hunt where 30 ninjas in black clothes are hunting a rhinoceros.

Riding towards the outskirts of the city you will see a work by Hitnes, a Roman artist who takes inspiration from the world of animals for his murals. An example is the one showing mice and mandrills painted in 2012 on the side façade of a building in Via Pier de Crescenzi. Other stops include the graffiti by Andreco in in via dello Scalo named The Philosophical Tree, Daim’s mural in via Fioravanti and many others.

Casual, comfortable clothes and/or sportswear
