What is “Il Popolo”? Art student Egon is determined to find out.
Coming from a little Italian town, she is having his first taste of the flashy world of art openings, as well as experiencing the perks of living alone in the big city.
She is fascinated and repelled by the “borgata”, the roman outskirt, but never dares to take the 105 bus stopping in front of her house to get there.
But if Egon doesn’t go to the Borgata, the Borgata goes to Egon. Her entire world shifts when she meets Er Pantaleone, a charming working class dude who introduce her to graffiti and a way of seeing life light years away from her privileged world.
Perhaps Er Pantaleone can provide the answers she needs.
