Fourth step of our Napoli street art tour: today we’ll take you on the footsteps of the world famous italian artist that left many works here, we are talking about Alice Pasquini. This time our itinerary will start from the underground station Line 1 of Toledo, considered one of the most beautiful underground station of Europe with the tiled roof. From the underground exit, we depart in the direction of Via Toledo finally getting in Piazza Carità, where we will find the face of a child imprited on a payphone cabin. Alice usually adoperates stencils, spray cans and brushes, and often portraying female faces on small areas or also on large facades.
After the first work in Piazza Carità, we keep on going with our tour towards the historical centre, passing by the Santa Chiara monastery, where in Via Santa Chiara Alice Pasquini left one of the most significant works: painted on a tile located at the corner among the street and a little alley, there is a face of a woman with a child.
Other female characters we’ll find are located in Via San Giovanni Pignatelli, a street full of street art pieces with Diego Miedo and many others, here on the side of a cabin a face of a desperate woman, painted in cool tones of green and blue, is imprinted.
Going down this road we will get to Largo San Giovanni Maggiore, where a small door on the left is another frame for a charming work of Alice, a woman in the act of holding a parrot.
Leaving the square we find ourselves in Via Mezzocannone, one of the busiest streets of the city, given the numerous universities here: two doors of the University Federico II Alice gives us two works portraing little boys running and a woman.
Before ending our street art tour we can do a little food and wine stop at Tandem, a restaurant where we can taste a delicious neapolitan ragù. After also enjoying a ragùe we head to Piazza del Gesù, and in particular, our attention will be in the direction of the Ska, an occupied laboratory by the city’s students, which facade was embellished with works by numerous street artists.
