Abstract

Street art is a growing phenomenon. The frequent appearance of works, projects, and events in this area reveals its increasing social and cultural role worldwide. The chance of digitizing art represents a benefit to defining cultural paths on the territory, providing an additional tool to understand and interpret it. Street art is characterized by peculiar aspects that make it unique in the artistic panorama. The democratization of contents and the physical decay of the work are two pillars. Any digitalization and communication project should consider them carefully, proposing a knowledge model respectful of the art. Augmented Reality (AR) is a representation tool that leads to achieving that delicate balance between the real and the digital, enhancing the specificities of both. The authors start from the experimentation about artwork digitalization, connecting image deterioration with image recognition. Besides, they show some possible applications in Rome through a critical analysis of the domain, opening some future multidisciplinarity scenarios.
