I was talking with my floormate...she's mad about the posters, writings, stencils, etc on the walls surrounding the faculty of Arts in Pisa. She claims it's not fair to cover ancient buildings' walls with that "shit" (because shit it is for her)..So I was thinking that maybe she's right, that cultural goods have to be preserved and it's not fair to contaminate them..yes it's true, but in Italy I think the situation is special: we have ancient buildings all around, most of our buildings are ancient, especially the ones of the faculties..So is it right to forbid people to express themselves in that way? Or isn't it better to let cultures overlap and mix? Isn't it another form of expression of our society?
The only thing I really can't stand is when something is done just for insulting and deface..I really don't understand (or better, I perfectly understand and this is the worst part...) the paint stains on churches and university official buildings...I dont' tolerate this kind of expressions only when they're moved just by anger, without respect and conciousness of the value of ancient art and traces.
But still this express our society..
