Via del Mandrione

Via del Mandrione runs along the remains of the Roman Acqua Felice aqueduct, between Via Tuscolana, Via Casilina and the railway. Small workshops, shacks, and old houses built however was possible after the war, now give this area of the city the look of a faraway place.

The life in Mandrione and its decadent look made a strong impression on neorealist directors and photographers, including Pier Paolo Pasolini and Franco Pinna, who dedicated much ink and film to the people who live here.

Today, the black and white photographs by Paolo Colaneri grant us a new glimpse of this special world.
