Rome is a beautiful city on its own, full of history and art spanning thousands of years. But being steeped in history doesn”t mean you can”t appreciate the modern, and that”s why the city is proud to have an enormous piece that spans two entire sides of a building. Italian street artist Blu used the 48 windows of the building, as well as the corner feature, to create the eyes and mouths in a colorful mural of 27 fantastical faces.
The large scale mural brings color to an otherwise nondescript building, and while it may not be a permanent fixture in the Eternal City, it reflects Rome”s long history of large-scale public art. You can see more of it on Blue”s Facebook page, as well as on his blog. If you”d like a virtual your, you can even see it on Google Maps.
