‘Mappa Mundi’ is a poster of real street names across London named after countries from around the world. London has always been linked to the wider world through the movement of goods, people and ideas; these connections with other nationalities are recorded throughout the city in its street names. Roman Road follows a route walked by the city’s Roman creators; Greek Street (1677) was named after a nearby Greek church; Poland Street (1680s) after an inn named in honour of “The King of Poland”. The central street name in red typeface directly lifts the title of the campaign ‘London Is Open’ to celebrate our international diverse city and that it continue to be so.
The title derives from the Medieval Latin words mappa (cloth or chart) and mundi (of the world).
