Guerilla Knitting in Monza
Guerilla Knitting is: "a form of street art that has been spreading across the globe over the last few years. Knitters and crocheters take their “matronly craft” to the streets covering urban objects with brightly coloured fuzzy goodness. Few objects are off limits and tree trunks, hydrants, mailboxes, park benches, public telephones, bicycles, public sculptures, and even cars and buses have been yarnstormed" (http://www.dailyartfixx.com/tag/guerilla-knitting/).
Here we are in Monza, and our knitters have got covered all symbols of a romantic, bright, poetic and sweet past.
The " Dolce Vita" was finished a long time ago, and now the only thing we can do is to look that part of our history and cultural heritage and hoping for change.
The writing on the 500's plate is "mi ritorni in mente" ( "you return in my mind"), so i hope the colors will come back soon.
