Graffiti love in Venezia
Representing all the things I love about Italy in the place I love the most.
“Cicci, rethink it! I love you!” Pleading graffiti in Sorrento.
Bacio chocolates, a worldwide favourite with a little pearl of saggezza (wisdom) inside every wrapper.
The “Via dell’Amore”. The first pathway, running from Riomaggiore to Manarola, to ever connect any of the towns in the Cinque Terre. It allowed young lovers to meet, court and keep up their relationships in an area that had previously been extremely isolated.
“Mamma’s love, you’re the only one!” Nothing displays a mother’s love for her child like graffiti in Sorrento.
Lucchetti d’amore, in what some would call the world’s most romantic city, Verona. The practice of using padlock as a sign of one person’s neverending love for another probably came from the Italian movie “Ho Voglia di Te”. While romantic at heart, the practice annoys city officials everywhere!
Love in a cappuccio from Bar Cacio e Pere in Siena.
Love from the ground up. The mosaic floor of Liberamente Osteria, Siena.
