Some of the works can also be seen in the next door Casa Del Popolo, a community center for the Italian ex-communist party that is today functioning as a bar for old people, unemployed and young kids playing with video games. Six small works – “Reading Antonio Gramsci,” (a founding member of the Italian communist party) – are hanging next to the library in one of the corridors without disturbing the given aesthetic of this legendary place.
