Forgotten… (The Exhibition) at MACRO Testaccio focuses on the buildings in the centre of Rome that, due to the physical transformation of the city or the changing needs of its inhabitants, have lost their sociological and functional importance and are therefore at the risk of being forgotten.
In recent months, former factories, closed cinemas, small stations, abandoned areas and street markets were the subject of artistic actions. The interventions were made by leading urban artists from Portugal, including Add Fuel, Frederico Draw, Bordalo II, Miguel Januário and Daniel Eime.
The exhibition shows the work of the urban artists though the photographs of Paul Darra and the videos of Leonardo Meuti. The work of each artist is presented in a dedicated section: Buildings, Words, Faces, Nature, Traditions and People.
