Clet Abraham, Abusing Street Signs All Over Florence

French artist Clet Abraham has left his mark all over Florence (and other cities in Europe, Japan and the US), adding a little zig and zag to the standard, boring street signs. He started making his whimsical adjustments in 2010 and hasn't stopped. Legal? Not really. Entertaining? Definitely!

Bringing that rock 'n' roll spirit.

Authoritarian love and hate.

Creating creativity.

Branching beyond Do Not Enter signs.

Hauling beauty.

Palatial Digs At The Palazzo Pitti In Florence

When the Medici family moves in for generations, it's going to hoard a few treasures and do the rooms up fine. Luca Pitti had the place built in 1458. About 100 years later, the palazzo went to the Medici family. Today, it's the largest museum complex in Florence. Time to check out some fancy stuff.

The main art museum also includes a wing of period rooms.

Details, rich (and illusional) details.

Re-contextualizing the art work.

Bedroom, a study in gilded yellow.
