I continue to find graffiti that transcends the base use of tagging an area for a gang. I even found one out in Monterosso of Cinque Terre, shown here.
It still makes me jumpy to be in an area with so much graffiti, which is good. Even if I have been in no danger here in Italy, you do not want to become complacent and keep that attitude back home where the danger is much greater. Still, here are some of the more beautiful examples I was able to capture.
