Alice Pasquini New Mural - Itri, Italy

Alice Pasquini just finished her new wall on the streets of Itri, Italy for the always excellent Memorie Urbane Festival.

Alice Pasquini just finished her new wall on the streets of Itri, Italy for the always excellent Memorie Urbane Festival.
Inspired by the De Sica’s 1960 film, 'La Ciociara' (‘Two Women’ in English) that was filmed here, she transformed this small town wall into a movie set. The wall depicts Sophia Loren, the star of the film, painted using sepia tones giving it more vintage look. While Alice was painting the mural, she was visited by residents of the town, many of whom shared their stories about the film, including an elderly lady that had a small role in it, which enabled her to support her family of five children.
