DALL'ITALIA CON AMORE

I really love this mural. It transports a small Vespa shop from a busy street in Fort Lauderdale to a quiet canal in Venice. Fantastico! Click on the image to enlarge, it is worth it. Goda di.As for the Vespa scooters, very cool but not in this city. Too many crazy drivers to contend with. It is hard enough to get around in a car. The shop is always a fun visit, however.

  1. That is the coolest mural and the best post I have seen in a while. I plan to forward this to some artist friends of mine.

  2. This is amazing. How many people have tried to drive, swim, walk, fly through this one, I wonder?

  3. Nice catch and impressive trompe-l'œil. I had to enlarge it to see what was true or not.
    I was trying to decipher the signature, but I can't go further than 'Ciccio', a familial form for Francesco.

  15. I love wall murals and especially good trompe-l'œil. I just visiting Venice DP a moment ago and he is featuring a brdge like this one.

    Sadly, scooters haven't made it in Tampa either. The shop I posted several weeks ago closed. Crazy car drivers (and SUVs)

    Nice post!

  17. That is great. Looking at the large photo you can tell that whoever made this knew what he or she were doing.

  18. Hello,
    Very cool! Quite amazing.
    About the scooters: Scooters are noisy and dangerous. At least I think so. Because I envy anyone who has a scooter. Especially a Vespa. I came to love them when I was in Rome-:)

    Best regards
    Asta
