Pinsteps. From Graffiti to Skyscrapers: Florentine's Evolution
Places to visit in Tel Aviv-Yafo. Languages: en, ru

The term 'graffiti' derives from the Greek word 'graphien', meaning 'to write'. Initially, graffiti referred only to inscriptions, markings, and drawings made on walls within public view. It was only over time that it evolved to include more elaborate graphics and street art. This evolution reflects the changing dynamics of public expression and creativity.

Tel Aviv's Florentine district, once primarily a craft and tradesmen area, still houses many carpentry workshops, evidence of its industrious past. These old-world establishments now starkly contrast to the new high-rise buildings mushrooming around them, illustrating the district's rapid transformation and gentrification. This juxtaposition of old and new, tradition and progress, further emphasizes Florentine's distinctive character and charm.
