“ERGO SUM” (Rome Subway) by VALERIO POLICI
“Graffiti was the missing piece in our puzzle to remain teen ager forever” Ruzd (RIP) Drm crew. Berlin 1999
Scared from the transition to the adult life, some kids decide to stop for a while in a halfway stage to take their “out of cell time”, before that the tranquillity and the carelessness will vanish forever. In the obsessive research of a momentary freedom, their existences got catapulted in this limbo populated by myths legends and heroic deeds, where often they remained locked for the entire life.
The appeal of being outlaw, the obstacles, and the theatricality of the location where their “missions” take place, make their life appear as those of modern knight errant, in a constant request of new adventures.
Among intrusions, climbing, infinite running and a lots of adrenaline, this is the story of their escape and to a certain extent also about mine.
