Things SHE misses in Rome - Part 2 of a series

 1. The Spanish artist Borondo's artwork where one least expects it - in an abandoned store window.

(We featured another one of his works - now painted over - here.)    

2. Threatening  political posters ("Liberate us from the 'liberators'") 
We explained this poster in an earlier post.  No al TTIP refers to the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, a proposed trade agreement between the EU and the United States that was finally killed off in 2019. The anti-TTIP folks were concerned that the nation states of Europe would have been victimized by transnational corporations--especially, according to the poster's graphic, American companies. Nice "Uncle Sam" look!

3. Creative use of bread (this restaurant is in Ariccia)

4. The mystery of what's being protected with orange plastic fencing
