Bergamo Graffiti - Writing on the Wall

edit icont
A collage of different tags in Bergamo, Italy.


In a previous post, Bergamo Street Art Stencils, we covered the theme of stencils on walls. In this post we show a sampling of tags found on walls. We found some of the tags in surprisingly "rural" locations, away from the city center. Because we snapped these photos on our way to do something, be it going out to eat, shop, or hike, the tags are just what we saw, not necessarily the best representation of what Bergamo has to offer.

We've been in Bergamo, Italy for a few months now and everything has been a rush. All along though, I've been snapping photos of walls. Here are a few of the stencil-related pieces I've seen, with the exception of "1907" which was written. All of the shots are with a radius of a 1km or so from Porto Nuovo in the città bassa.

Left: 1907 refers to the foundation of the Bergamo Atalanta soccer team. Center: A missile in the head. Right: Lega Nord punching bag.

A Sample of Lisbon Graffiti

On our trip A Second Tour of Andalusia: Ronda, Cádiz, and Algeciras, we finished up in Lisbon. We were in the city for a few days and barely scratched the street art scene. Here are just a few things that we saw.
