I know I should get worked up about this dreadful act of vandalism at the Trevi fountain, but I can’t. The red stuff thrown into the water is harmless, the man responsible claims to be a futurist, which these days is merely touching, and the act coincides (almost) with a massive demonstration to defend workers against punitively liberal labour legislation. Red flags in the streets, red water in the Trevi fountain. It’s the October revolution all over again.
And I think it looks fabulous.
