Then someone Decided That the building had to be protected against trespasser and a wall was built in front of the door which That Became hidden behind bricks and leaflets.

It’s now an unknown treasure for the Hundreds of people walking by there every day.

Oldwalls is here to pay a tribute to all the people who gifted colors to Milan and to allow everyone to Recognize writings and shapes in place of gray walls, glass buildings and empty places.”

Long story short... take a look at this “before and after” graffiti time capsule from Milan, one of the best cities on the planet.
