Pisans

Effetto Venezia, LivornoPisans are everywhere. They stealthly put images of their crooked tower on the Ferris wheel at “Effetto Venezia”.Colosseums and Leaning Towers of Pisa in a basket, RomeIn Rome you can have baskets of small Colosseums and, on the side, a few Leaning Towers.Pizza boxes with the Leaning Tower of Pisa, ParisEven in Paris someone is selling pizza with the Pisan symbol, and a wrongly spelled “Buon apetito”. They're Pisans, after all.

Lol, I thought you were going to say they're French after all!

Even here you can find Pisan symbols, and wrongly spelled Italian words:)

Dina said...

It makes me wonder what those Pisans say about y'all.

LadyArt said...

...they are just trying to make you remember and earn a bit of money here and finally seduce you to go to the beloved place...

but perhaps the whole procedure is absolutely bare of romance...I sell yours, you sell mine... do they Eiffel Towers in Rome, by the way?

They may be devoid of charm and class, but I still find it interesting how icons can flood the market...and people continue to buy them!

Hilda said...

Now you've made me want to check the pizza places here for the leaning tower.

I suspect this post is somewhat slanted.

Hopefully, they are all made in Italy and not some Asian country.

@B Squared - I won't comment on the pizza (which I sure hope is made right there) or the carousel, but the little resin repros are DEFINTELY made in China. I may even know the factory! :-)

@VP - do I detect the slightest hint of... well... snobbery? :-D :-D

So funny! You got my morning started well! I like to laugh in the morning hours. Those darn Pisans! They're everywhere and won't leave well-enough alone!

Small City Scenes said...

Too funny!! Like Jacob I like to start the day with a chuckle. Darn Pisans. LOL MB

Halcyon said...

Darn those Pisans! Livornans should start a campaign to get their symbols on napkins and such.
You can become the next symbol of Italy!

Kaori said...

We can see how fond you are of the Pisans, haha. But I like the pizza boxes :D

Luis Gomez said...

VP this is such a great post! I am still laughing.

JM said...

Small Colosseums in a basket! That's cool!
What's Nutella doing in a pizza shop? :-)))

A real Italian handmade pizza would have been nice....just now. Anyway, enjoy your weekend!
