Rule #38 of Robert Reid’s “44 Little Travel Rules No One Tells You” is to take photos of things that might change. I couldn’t agree more (and I wish I had photos of the pink snakeskin fashion craze that hit Milan in 2001!) A fabulous subject in this category is graffiti. Pay attention to graffiti in Italy and you’ll notice political themes, sports themes, the usual swear words, and my favorite: love graffiti.
As someone who has had to scrub gang-related graffiti from my front fence here in Chicago, I don’t condone graffiti per se – though street art is great – but where else in the world can you find graffiti about everlasting love?
I also find political graffiti interesting, though I’m sure a lot of it is over my head.
