FAME: a street art festival which took over the small Pugliese village of Grottaglie from 2008-2012. For five years internationally-renowned artists such as Blu, Conor Harrington, Erica il Cane and Vhils made the pilgrimage to this tiny southern Italian village to draw graffiti over its ancient walls. Angelo Milano was the man behind this revolution – creating a grass roots festival based upon his love of street art and disorder. Milano invited artists at his expense to stay in his home, his mum the chef and his dad the driver. Sadly the festival no longer exists but what remains is an amazing vault full of videos and memories and the faded graffiti of a legendary period.
