Picture on the wall

Picture on the wall

[February, 2012] If you look at this photo closely, one side is a painting.

Not only in Genoa, but all over in Liguria in Italy, you see this kind of walls.

I wonder why…

The people in Liguria are said to be careful about money, or stingy.

Is that the reason why they paint the wall as if there were some engravings?
