No pictures please

The fourth of five posts about Italian election posters. One more tomorrow, then I swear I’ll stop boring you with pictures of Italian wannabe politicos and start boring you with [insert wry self-deprecation which commenters will contradict in a spontaneous outpouring of admiration for my wit and insight].

In a desperate attempt at novelty among all the headshots of middle-aged men grinning inanely for your vote, there is now the anti-image candidate who only shows the back of his head.

Meet Gerri.

I don’t know why, but I suspect he isn’t wearing any shoes with that pin-striped suit.


According to Italian law, as of one month before the election date, posters can only be of a certain maximum size. Any larger posters still remaining after this date are unceremoniously covered up.

Isn’t this a great country?

Red Noses

There hasn’t been the same rash of red noses that hit most of the political posters last year.

I hope you’ve been taking notes

After all my babble about these posters, I leave the final candidate’s picture to you. Discuss.

  1. Did you see how huge and shiny her shoulder is? She could challenge any opposition councillors to arm wrestle for their vote.
