This video explores some streets and “stradaccie” (“ugly streets” in Italian) in Los Angeles, not as tourists, but as observers of the multiple messages they carry. It covers an area of approximately 10 x 16 miles (16 x 25 kilometers) which includes Inglewood, Ocean Park, Santa Monica, Brentwood, Westwood, Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Hollywood, Downtown L.A., Chinatown and Koreatown. The street is the primary urban space. It acts upon us 24/7 throughout our lives. It synthetize what we are as a culture and also contributes in shaping what we are as individuals.
