On Thursday in Rome a special mural dedicated to the late, great composer Ennio Morricone was unveiled.
The design, revealed to the public on what would have been the Oscar winner's 94th birthday, was chosen by the fans on the Socios platform, with around 4,500 $ASR Fan Token holders making their voices heard.
The mural, titled 'View over Rome' and created by the street artist Lucamaleonte, sits on the side of a building on Piazza Lorenzo Lotto in the Tor Marncia district of the city.
A gift to the city of Rome from the club, one brought to life thanks to the contribution of fans to celebrate a Rome-born, Roma fan who made his mark on the world in distinctive fashion.
The tribute to Morricone follows in the footsteps of similar projects to eulogise the likes of Gigi Proietti, Anna Magnani, Alberto Sordi, Lando Fiorini and Sergio Leone, as part of a wider celebration of Rome's 150th anniversary as Italy's capital.
Ennio's son, Marco Morricone, was among those present at Thursday's unveiling - alongside the club's director of community relations Francesco Pastorella and representatives from a number of local authorities.
