  1. Well, the first will definitely keep us grounded :) I’m a bit confused by the last ;)

    • As was I Ken…. The images are photos I took of an street art installation. From what I gather, it’s a statement about the way the media only gives us snippets, sound bites and not the whole story. I loved it though for the classic Italian handwriting ;-)

      • Another of your classic captures, Janine. I assume you chose the order in which you posted them.

      • Well of course Ken ;-) But you are too kind and too sweet. Grazie di cuore, x

    Hee hee, Janine. You got a grin out of me. I suppose you climbed up on somebody’s roof to get the monkey on the chimney? xxxx

    • Well Jann, I guess I actually did climb up on someone’s roof… Just that in Perugia it’s called walking up the street! I think you’ll remember what I mean ;-) Grazie cara xxxx

  3. wow! this is one the most interesting post ever. So many words in the oldest cities of my Country and once again I have never noticed it. “non blocchi la porta” is my favorite. It’s the perfectly formal and gramatically corrent. Weird for this sort of things.
    Enjoy your start of the week.

    • Grazie Mari, anche a te! I love your responses so much. As a native, you are bound to have a totally different way of seeing things. The ultra formal language of the sign struck me too. Formality is one of the aspects of the Italian language I love and, of course, it’s inseparable from the culture of the place itself.

      You know, you have made me try to see the little things that are utterly familiar to me here, in Melbourne, in a new way. I literally try and imagine what Mari would see…. Buona settimana amica! xxx

    • Thank you Deb. Said like a true Brisbane girl xxx
