We were attracted by a powerful expanse of the Acquedotto Alessandrina, which runs more or less east and west here, and is the northern boundary of a modest park--Parco Alessandrino--which on this warm Friday was full of families watching their children play.
Turning south, and just beyond the park proper, we came upon what seemed to be a community center with a paved courtyard, populated by kids kicking soccer balls and carousing.
The courtyard was handsomely decorated with murals. One was dedicated to Tor Pignattara, another to Quadraro, a neighborhood to the south--apparently an effort to given equal time to the two major user groups. A third mural offered portraits of young men of some stature locally.
A bit of graffiti--of the scrawled, ugly sort we wish there were less of--nonetheless had an interesting message: "Pensare e' Gratis": Thinking is Free.
At the end of the paved playground was another piece of non-sanctioned work, a three-line effort at social commentary:
il prete non ti tocca the priest doesn't touch you
la guardia non uccide the police don't kill
io non sto scrivendo I'm not writing
