While we were in Italy on our honeymoon, it happened to be election time for the EU. This led to some interesting conversations with cabbies about the merits of Berlusconi. It also meant that we got to see some terrific posters with giant pictures of, for the most part, hopeful-looking middle aged men.
I couldn't help but be struck by how different most of the Italian politicians (at least in the area where we were staying) looked from our run-of-the-mill 'Merkan guyz. We really saw some killer unibrows! (Here is where I admit that I know pretty much nothing about Italian politics. I better get to remedying that!)
I think the backdrop on this poster is pretty kewl.
