Tor Marancia, Rome – Part IV

“Veni Vidi Vici” “I came; I saw; I conquered” – a famous phrase used by Julius Caesar after he had achieved a quick victory at the Battle of Zella. In this mural French-American artists Lek & Sowat decided to use Caesar’s phrase with a fake typo. “Veni Vidi Vinci” is a reference to the name of a Great artist: Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci. Lek & Sowat painted the letters in gold so that it can shine when the sun hits the building with all its power.

The next mural is a vibrant piece by German artist Rafael Gerlach aka Satone. He titled his beautiful work “Waterfall of words” as he was inspired by the melody of the Italian language.

The last piece “The Nourishing Unconquered Sun” is by Italian artist Domenico Romeo. He used symbols of life, thought and language.
