Amedeo & Pietro

Bust of Amedeo Modigliani, LivornoAmedeo Modigliani got a quite good location for his bust, at the end of the main avenue inside the park of “Villa Fabbricotti”.Bust of Pietro Mascagni, LivornoA few steps on the right, the poor Pietro Mascagni wasn't so lucky, he feels dirty and is overwhelmed by the graffiti in background.

Truly Pietro wasn't lucky at all.

Oh, dear. Did Pietro deserve this treatment?

That poor man, Pietro. He's a mess and surrounded by a mess. And it looks rather like he's wearing a mask. Maybe that's not really Pietro under there? Might be someone else entirely. Yes?

I'm glad for Modigliani, but everything in the second photo is pretty pathetic.

Poor Pietro he does look rather unhappy. MB

Very very meaningful contrast. Such a creative post!

Poor Pietro Mascagni! I don't know his music but I'm sure he doesn't deserve this kind of attitude!

That's a strange cavalry behind him. Would have been a good shot for what will probably be the October theme day. Modigliani is gorgeous. Happy Sunday!

Too bad. If it could only be webs like Brattcat's.

Poor Pietro. Someone doesn't like his music, it seems.

VP said...

@ Jacob - They just finished a major renovation of the park but they missed this spot, which is impossible to miss.

@ ciel - It wouldn't be trouble at all finding more graffiti in Livorno...

It's all been said, VP... Cute post of contrasts. The artist, AM, was sure a hunk in his youth (before he pickled himself with all the nasties)!

Kaori said...

Mr. Mascagni seems to be aware of how dirty he is, thus the frown! Poor guy...

Gunn said...

The good thing is that Pietro himself has not been decorated by the graffiti people!! Nice statues both of them.

Kate said...

What a contrast!

JM said...

Poor Pietro! You know I'm used to these 'lovely' backgrounds here too...

I see Italians like graffiti as much as the Greeks......

Still, the second one is an interesting shot.
