rome - The outlines of emperors, popes and artists are slowly starting to appear on the walls along the Tiber river in Rome. They form part of a huge mural of the history of the city to tell.

The 550 meter long and 10 meter high mural 'Triumphs and laments' is applied with high pressure spray and is based on a design by the South African artist William Kentridge. See include the Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius, the Italian dictator Benito Mussolini and the she-wolf who was the nurse in accordance with the tradition of the two founders of the city, Romulus and Remus.

The painting does not always see. The initiators assume that the debris from the river blurs the historical images in the course of time. In April, the work is officially unveiled.

The walls along the Tiber were built in the nineteenth century to protect Rome from flooding.
