Forgotten Project by Lucy

Behind this wall hides the old Roma football training grounds 'Campo Testaccio'. Now abandoned the grounds resemble a forest, the stadium lights remain off and no one enters. It had been promised to be restored as a communal stadium but work was halted prematurely and has since been forgotten.

Forgotten Project aim to draw attention back to vital community spaces in central Rome that have been neglected, over shadowed by the tourist attractions. 

At Campo Testaccio together we painted the 40m length of the exterior wall. Thank you to everyone involved in the project and to all the locals who stopped to show and share their support. You can read more behind the scenes on the Blocal blog.

And if you're in Rome go see all their mural projects, it makes for an alternative way to see this incredible city without selfie sticks ruining your view.

To help support this project further all artists involved have released prints available on the F.P's online shop
