I’m afraid I’ve been very bad about taking Flat Copley out with me. I’ll try to do better about that over the next few days. For now though, I do have some more naked men for you and a few other fun and random things.
First, the sculptures. Most of these come from Florence. There were so many more amazing sculptures that I wasn’t able to photograph, but I hope you enjoy this selection.
It may be a bit irreverent, but when I saw the actual David, I had to wonder if they did a lot of manscaping. He had some very symmetrical, neatly-arranged curls.
And there’s this, which I found in Siena:
Now, for a bit of randomness.
On the same fountain in Siena, I found this lady. She already had a bird carved at her feet, but I love the way they flock to her, especially the one who decided to sit right in her lap. She is undoubtedly their patron saint.
We spent a day in Fiesole, which is a cute little place in the hills above Florence. While wandering there, my friend and I came across this:
At first glance, it’s just a vending machine. Upon looking again, you may notice it dispenses condoms. But if you look more closely, you’ll find other things as well. This machine also dispenses lubricant, cock rings, an “anello stimolante per lui e per lei,” and something called a “Play Delight” which is in fact a small vibrator. Yes, CoP readers, if you’re feeling desperate but don’t want to deal with finding an actual person to use that condom with, you can purchase (for only 12 euros) a vibrator from the vending machine.
And all I really wanted was an ATM.
Finally, we come to the end of today’s post. As it turns out, this is also the part where you get to join in. Last week I shared the Italian exit sign with you (which Heidi dubbed “the guy charging the rectangle”). This week, I discovered this sign. I’m not exactly sure what it’s trying to tell me, but I thought it might be fun to play a little game. So, CoP readers: here’s your chance.
CAPTION THAT SIGN
By next Tuesday, I’ll be back home, but with any luck, I’ll have a few pictures to share with you then as well. I’m currently in Lucca (which I adore) and will spend the last few days of my Italy adventures in Venice.
