Along Via del Guasto, an unassuming and potentially unappealing street between Via delle Belle Arti and Piazza Verdi, there are some unexpected surprises. What had a reputation as a drug-infested back alley in the past is trying to reclaim a safer yet still modern and edgy vibe. Guasto Village, which took place in the surrounding streets during the summer, was a way to give new life to the area. And while some complained and worried about noise and drink, others appreciated the Bologna Comune getting involved to improve the area. Being a university city, it all has a young vibe, but you don’t have to be a 20-something to appreciate the art on display.
This is a photo-heavy post, so I’ll keep the words short and let the art speak for itself. A picture’s worth a thousand words, so I’ve got quite a few thousand here! All of this is from just one stretch on each side of Via del Guasto. What’s your favorite work?
