While graffiti is far from a laughing matter for me, I have to admit this new piece of graffiti near the parking in the port of Amalfi made me smile yesterday. Then I was angry, but first I smiled. Anyone who knows my research past with the Duomo of Amalfi will understand why I smiled at this graffiti representation of it. But this piece of graffiti represents and new and much larger problem. Graffiti is starting to show up around the port of Amalfi, especially in the past month and a half. This is just a disgusting and disappointing thing to me, and it worries me that it will continue to spread. Will Amalfi soon look like Naples, where no major building or statue is free from graffiti? I certainly hope not!
