Trastevere neighborhood in the 1990's: strolling down the alleys of the thirteenth district, it was not rare to bump into a lively old man who yelled apparently senseless things and wrote on the walls with felt tip markers. Once, in Via del Moro he was writing on walls as usual, and next to him an angry shop owner he had stolen the marker from. A few minutes later a police car arrived, and the good ol' Salvatore started insulting the policemen as well, who after exchanging a few words with the shop owner, got back in the car and left. Everybody knew him in Trastevere, but most importantly, everybody knew his markings on the walls, "doctors are assassins...death to nuns...pedophile priests..."

Graffiti writers used to give him markers to write with, probably because they were the only people who by reading his scrawlings had really understood his tragic condition and manner of expressing himself. He had a very personal way of filling up the space on the walls, and writers had a certain respect for his stuff, and avoided writing over it.
