Above all, they exhibit their creativity, originality and research, inspired by the American and European giants that preceded them. By publishing the works of the artists that started...“Vecchia Scuola recounts the birth of Graffiti Writing in Milan between 1980 and the early ’90s, as seen through the eyes of the protagonists. It was in these years that the culture of Hip Hop and Graffiti Writing spread to Italy, laying the foundation for the development of a prominent national phenomenon that is now ingrained in every Italian city. These pioneering artists guide us in a photographic journey and tell stories of emotions, friendships and rivalries. Above all, they exhibit their creativity, originality and research, inspired by the American and European giants that preceded them. By publishing the works of the artists that started writing in those years, we hope to pay tribute to this culture and its development.
This book is dedicated to those who have made the history of Graffiti Writing Milanese.”
