Gidget takes on the Skinheads



In a comment on our recent "Found Art" effort, Jessica mentioned Rome's stencil artists, about which we know nothing--or almost nothing. We offer this smallish piece of stencil art (maybe 18 inches high), found during a giro around the university district, at the corner of viale Regina Elena and via Tiburtina, across from the cemetery. Pony-tailed, mini-skirted chick tossing swastika into trash basket. Visions of the 1960s? Gidget goes to Rome? Third-wave feminism?

I see that stencil quite a bit. There are a few in Trastevere.
