Not Much Beauty

I didn't see much beauty around me this Sunday morning: the first two streets are within few meters from the central Piazza Cavour and the crudely defaced white surface of the third photo is part of the monument to the soldiers fallen in the First World War, in Piazza della Vittoria.

Your photos are wonderful. I see graffiti a lot here in Montreal as well.

How distressing that such destruction has become the norm in many places. We have way too much of it in the States, too.

These are HORRIBLE, VP!

I have to say that I don't like seeing this graffiti!

Randy said...

How can these people not care. It's so sad.

The defacement of the monument is the saddest.
The bottles, well, at least they left most of them neatly bagged.
You did go out the morning after Saturday night.

The mixture of trash and graffiti is sad to see. Some people have no respect for the community where they live or for themselves.

Dina - It was Sunday around noon, but you can find there plenty of empty beer bottles every day of the week.

OMG, VP!
Now I understand your disappointments.
The Municipality of Livorno should prevent drinking beer in public places. Joking aside, it's a shame that beautiful Italian cities are degraded in this way.
