Some Sicilian graffiti!
The word graffiti comes from the Italian word graffiato (scratched). Today's graffiti generally expresses social and political slogans. In ancient times the Egyptians, Romans, Arabs, Greeks, also the Vikings and ancient Mayans, displayed phrases and decorations of love and simple words of thought. Sicilian graffiti is widespread and interesting, sometimes written on buildings of great architectural importance, but almost always artistic, colourful, and straight from the heart.
