On Sunday 27 October at the Atlantico of Rome we participated in the sixth edition of one of the most important events that the Capital has to offer.
The Kickit Market has once again proved to be a reference point for fans of the street world.
Urban culture, of course, is the host. Inside the exhibition space we find stands of sneaker, clothing, street accessories. Not only new and innovative pieces, but also vintage and limited editions. Impossible not to stop in front of pieces that have made the history of street culture.
Thousands of people wandered curiously and fascinated among exhibitors.
But Kickit is much more. It is a meeting place for enthusiasts and artists, it is a place of exchange, of interaction. For this reason, ample space has been given to street artists who have enchanted the public with their murals.
Foot Locker , sponsor of the event, wanted to interact directly with the young people present at the event. In fact anyone who wanted could have their sneakers personalized at their stand.
Another funny meeting point was the mini basketball court provided by Space 23, how not to stop and shoot for a goal?
Many national and international guests. Kickit always offers the chance to get to know great characters from the street sector. This year we saw the artist and feminist Lexi Bella, the artist Claw Money, the street artist Yes One.

@yes0ne “Ya Tu Sabe” la caption l’ha scritta lui stesso…e sarebbe brutto tradurla…toglierebbe il sapore Nuyoricano! I was raised in the South Bronx NYC. I was so inspired by the art I saw as a little boy on the subway trains in the 80’s. I was fortunate enough to surround myself by other up coming graffiti artist at the time and it became my passion. In 1983 I came up with the name Yes and I been active since. Big up to those that paved the way and those that are keeping this great art form called graffiti alive. “Ya Tu Sabe”
Exceptional godmother was the entrepreneur Maria Vittoria Cusumano who had the pleasure of interviewing many of the other guests, including the singer Ketama126 , Edson Sabajo co-founder of Patta the rapper, producer and writer Amir Issaa and the founder of Big Soup Stefano Paolini.
Maria Vittoria also had the pleasure of extracting the winner of the contest launched by MVC Magazine in collaboration with the same Kickit who won the legendary Stone Island X Supreme limited edition sweatshirt.
The Kickit even in this sixth edition was very rich in events, performances, guests, public. A real success, also supported by its media partners, including Nss Magazine , which has always talked about it and supports it.
We just have to wait for the next edition! We will surely meet again all there!
