Walking through the picturesque streets of San Sperate means embarking on an exciting journey into the world of art, a magical immersion in a kaleidoscope of figures and colors. Hundreds of colorful murals decorate the walls of the buildings making it an open-air museum, a "Museum Village”. It all began in 1968, a year of great political and cultural ferment, when the community of San Sperate moved by a volcanic desire for change based on the values of art and active participation of people, begins to rewrite its future. From the ’70s to nowadays San Sperate has been endowed with more than 180 murals. During the tour, we will walk along the main streets of the city center to admire how street art has evolved in the last 40 years.

An Art Lover’s dream - Exploring Art & Murals in San Sperate “The Museum Village” with Silvia is a valued treat. Her personality is bubbly and her own love of the art displays is relayed to us, the tourists by her ability to artistically line up the images for our snap shots. Her knowledge of the works and the artists, and her understanding of how the visual language addresses the social conditions and protests against inequalities is in-depth. This tour is vibrant and leaves me craving for more of the thrilling experiences Silvia imparts to tourists.
