Rome and the skate culture are strictly connected and it’s not a case that the next International Trophy 2022 will be in Rome.
From 90’s when the skate culture arrived in Ethernal city the ‘travertino’ area at the EUR zone or around the Stadio Olimpico, become the perfect spot for romans skater and still today, with more controls, are used like meeting point by the new generation.
The skate culture is not only a sport but also a clothing movement with its uniform. Brand like Dickies moved from work clothing stores to skate spot thanks its price and its durability. Dickies became also a symbol from 90s thanks to 874 model, a chino pant in different color with the right fitting, resistance and logo on the waistline. A pant to use everyday on skate or not.
Today Dickies is going to live a second life thanks to social trend, but for us is not just a TikTok, its an establishment like Roman's architecture, something radical in SUEDE culture.
