The first street painting took place in the 16th century Italy, when artists began using chalk to make drawings on pavement. The artists made paintings of the Virgin Mary (Madonna in Italian). They became known as modonnari, they were known for a life of freedom and travel. Today modonnari and their quaint street paintings continue to be a colorful part of the celebrations that take place every day in modern Italy.
