    1. Hi Ania . No jury for this selection. If you think another artist should be in the list, let us know 🙂

  1. I understand that to make a list of all the very interesting itaian street artists is a huge and almost impossible work, but to limit the list to 20 is too less. There are a plenty of them that are very valuable and not listed, for example: Dissenso Cognitivo, Nemos, Ale Senso, Collettivo FX, Awer, Snem, Neve, Guerrilla Spam, Laura Luvi, Sea Creative, Hitness, Caktus e Maria, Giulio Vesprini, Il Baro only to say those who come in my mind at the moment.
