Hi Frankele,

My friend Willemieke Molenaar showed me these photos she took last summer while on vacation in Piemonte. They were taken in Monta, South East of Torino….The fading ad is a portrait of Benito himself, still there from WW-II times. If you look carefully you can see bullet holes in the wall. Supposedly the portrait is regularly being shot at, I guess to show how people feel about it. Curious what you think about it!

Lfs,
