If you’ve been to Italy, you may or may not have realized the very real graffiti problem. Such a beautiful country, with historic and significant buildings, covered in graffiti. It drives me insane, you can find some form of vandalism on almost every building in the big cities. But not all graffiti in Italy is created equal, some is actually romantic and quite poetic.

I mean, Italy is an awe inspiring place, think of Dante, Petrarch, Boccaccio maybe if they were around nowadays, they would be writing their poetry on walls.

So here are some of my favorite romantic graffiti that I have found throughout Italy, and of course, the translations underneath:

Italian Graffiti 10

Italian Graffiti 9

Ok so maybe not quite on the level of Dante, but some of these are pretty deep for graffiti, am I right? Of course these romantic graffitis are the minority, but I have only seem romantic graffiti in Italy.
