After Godzilla

Sign of the 1921 political center, Livorno
The more recent sign of a political center in Via dei Mulini, which now goes as “1921” or “El Chico Malo” (The Bad Boy). The reference is to the year when the Italian Communist Party was founded here in Livorno.
Sign of the Godzilla social center, by Errico Fiorini, Livorno
In December 2010 it was still a social center and it was named after the main character of so many monster movies: Godzilla.

Thoughtful mean to measure time and life. Over here people celebrate the same year and the 25th of March as National Day with parades.

Please have a good new week ahead.
