A metropolitan movement that shocked the world of art

The books documents the life and art of Massimo “Crash Kid” Colonna. Crash Kid still represents a pivotal figure in the development of Hip Hop culture in Italy. The artist made his debut in Rome in 1983 as a break dancer laying the foundations of what is today recognized in Italy as the Hip Hop movement. Crash Kid – A Hip Hop Legacy documents – through unpublished images from the artist’s archive and contributions from other leading figures of the Italian and international Street scene – the Crash Kid’s breaker and writer career, revealing the dedication and the influence that the artist has given to the whole Hip Hop scene and confirming him as a legendary reference point for everyone.

The birth of the street culture in Italy and his pioneers

The book collects photographs and texts that document the birth of the Street Culture in Italy, from the early Hip Hop concerts of the 80s to the birth of the “Zulu Party”, real meeting points for the pioneers of this nascent movement. A collection of more than 400 speeches, all exclusively produced by the protagonists of the period, which document the art of Crash Kid and at the same time tell how this subculture has developed, moving from underground to mainstream movement that we all know today good.

“I remember when Afrika Bambaataa came to Rome for the first time. It was in 1985, a very special evening. Massimo and I  went to see him together, and after the concert we went to Galleria Colonna and we danced all night. Massimo would fuel everyone, he loved Hip Hop and was a real b-boy. And those catchphrases of his…He always joked, he was like a child.” – Jimmy Fernandez
