What is FAME? The answer depends on what language your speaking. In English, the word refers to a state of being widely honored and acclaimed. And in Italian, the word means starvation, or hunger. FAME proves to be a fitting name for the festival, as the artists that participate have favorable public reputations as well as a hunger to create. Notable street artists from cities all over the world join in the small southern Italian town of Grottaglie. Here they would paint large site-specific murals, as well as help charm some of the city’s aesthetically depressed areas. On the weekend of September 23-25th, collectors, enthusiasts, and artists gathered in Grottaglie to celebrate the completion of the work present in the town. The bad pedestrian visited the town to experience everything that is the FAME Festival.
