Silverman By The Wall

This silverman is standing against the wall in Piazziale Valdo Fusi, and of course the local graffiti artists never leave him alone, they just have to add in their markings.....and break some part of him.

Bookshop Paravia

The newspaper ' La Stampa ' claimed that the 'historical' bookshop Paravia in via Garibaldi is closing down, but actually it is a false alarm, so the bookshop has to put on their own announcement on their shop window to clarify that they are very much still in business.....

Hare Krishnas

A group of Hare Krishnas dancing and singing the Hare Krishna mantra in via Roma.....

So cheerful, so much joys, then came the carabinieri.......

In this case, I do totally support the carabinieri from stopping them. At the other end of via Roma, in piazza San Ccarlo, there was the concert for the celebration of Carabinieri and the joyful, cheerful song of the Hara Krishnas had completely disturbed the concert, creating quite a distraction.
Of course it went down without problem, since they are such peaceful individuals.....:)

Sculptures By Xu Hong Fei

A number of sculptures by chinese artist Xu Hong Fei are on display in piazza Castello, his works seem to contain a sense of humor and influence of Japanese girly comic.....About the some choices of material, not sure if glass fibre is suitable for out door display, as some of the items seem to suffer a bit of damage.

Sunflowers In Piazza

A 'field' of sunflowers at the end of piazza Statuto! So big and so bright they are, I think is a good idea to plant them in the piazza, they are easy to plant, really beautiful....and so summer!
