Venice, Italy. October, 2012

It’s no accident that the word graffiti is Italian. In Rome, in Florence, in Naples and especially here in Venice, I’ve seen a huge amount of scribblings, most of it political like this. The last time I was in Venice, I remember seeing a tag Amor e Anarchia (Love and Anarchy; I photographed it because I love the 1973 Lina Wertmüller film of the same name.) This time, a posting by a local who wants his city to buck the growing national movement of conservative rulemakers. I love the sketch of the ancient helmet. Point taken.
