Graffiti Again

Yes to revolution, no to war!, graffiti, Livorno
“Sì alla rivoluzione, no alla guerra!” (Yes to revolution, no to war!)
Erasing graffiti from the wall of the Central Market, LivornoThis same wall of the “Mercato Centrale” was thoroughly cleaned last summer. The only question then was how long it would last.
Now we know.

So sad to see the lack of respect from some people.

Randy said...

I hope it stays clean for a long time.

Jack said...

I really don't understand why there is so much graffiti over there. It is a shame.

Sometimes I intensely dislike spray paint...I didn't realize, until I did the Google ground level tour around parts of Livorno, how much graffiti there is. It's devasting to see beautiful, ancient buildings desecrated to make a social statement! Spray paint is so quick, so easy to use, I don't know what the answer is.

Now we know it right. Too bad the culprits aren't the ones that have to do the cleanup. they may think about what they are doing and not be a next time. MB

Why do they like revolutions better?! Sometimes, they are bloody too...

I'm surprised it lasted THAT long. Will there be a revolution today in court?

Dina said...

That's revolting.

It's so annoying, isn't it?
The same here, I must say.

Halcyon said...

Too bad. :(
Hope it gets cleaned again soon.

JM said...

Same over here too!

One of the walls here in Tokyo was wiped clean of creative graffiti and advertisements replaced it...I kind of liked the graffiti better.

Graffiti! I wonder why some people feel the need to make their mark.

Francisca said...

I reframe EG's question. Most of us would like to leave a mark. But a positive one. So, why do some feel compelled to leave such a disgraceful mark?! I wonder if the Romanians are learning from the Italians... because there sure is a lot if here in Bucharest!
