By Pantonio

Beautiful mural  by Portuguese artist Pantonio in Tor Marancia, Rome, Italy.
The piece titled “Il Ponentino (The West Wind)”depicts fishes and whales wildly floating on the facade,  almost beyond the wall’s limits. The title refers to a typical Roman wind that has been present during the making of this mural. Pantonio used shades of blue and turquoise to create this dreamlike picture.


“Il Ponentino” is one of my favourite works from Tor Marancia, it reminds me of carefree summers and swimming with the creatures of the ocean. I chose this mural for today because the Pisces are my zodiacal sign and it is my birthday today.

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.

Tor Marancia, Rome – Part II

Another gallery full of murals from the peripheral district Tor Marancia in Rome, Italy!
Click here for Part I!

The first mural titled “Welcome to Shanghai” is located next to Vhils’ near the Tor Marancia/Arcadia bus station. The piece is by Chinese artist Caratoes and it depicts a four-eyed Chinese Opera mask holding an origami version of the Roman she-wolf.
Tor Marancia used to be a village with little houses, shared bathrooms and small vegetable gardens. At that time this suburb was nicknamed Shanghai – allegedly because of the frequent floodings and extreme poverty.

Next mural is one of my favorite in this district – it is a piece by the Italian artist Mr. Klevra titled “Saint Mary of Shangai”.  Saint Mary of Shanghai has been a fictional patron of the neighborhood back when Tor Marancia used to be a village.
