William Kentridge's mural on the Tiber defaced with writing and drawings


William Kentridge's mural on the Tiber embankment walls has again been defaced with writing and drawings.

The mural created by William Kentridge on the Tiber embankment walls has been defaced with writing and drawings. The work had already been vandalized last spring.

The Superintendence has been activated to monitor the mural, check the damage and assess what kind of intervention needs to be done.

Deputy Mayor of Rome Luca Bergamo condemns the gesture: “I condemn the gesture, which denounces ignorance and disregard for both public space and the ingenuity of a great artist. It saddens the lack of respect for our city that I fear finds nourishment in the poverty and public debate that is bent on providing an apocalyptic image of Rome far from its articulation and vivacity.”
