Flowers must be a theme today. They are everywhere in blogland.

Fascinating signs. And, bourbon in Italy! Kentucky seems to think they have the corner on that market. ;)

Love it!

I love that first sign.

These are great!

I wonder if the epitaph will read 'morto in Vinarchia'. I hope that's correct. The fist sign is really pretty!

Out of these choices, I'd take the flowering court. If there's no room there, I always like an osteria.:)
Nice finds!

ciel - It is correct. I liked the idea of a sign quoting anarchy (even if an alcoholic flavored one) and another with a clear reference to the Bourbons...
