  Beware - Protesting Reindeers!
by KristaB

While walking through side alleys with Chiara, we stumbled upon this stunning ...
piece of art?

Christmas decorations, both reindeers without their LEFT ear!
I'll ask Chiara to translate the graffiti from the wall. Something about government and video surveillance, and about passive boycott?

Then we can try to figure out the whole message.
Since G8 Summit that took place in Genoa in 2001, the citizens became more sensitive to political issues, there are rainbow colored Peace flags hanging from many windows, and graffiti like these on many walls.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
