Stencil – ‘Pericolo di Morte’

Pericolo di morte

This stencil is from Ferrara in Emilia Romagna, Italy. It is not uncommon in Italy to find fairly ‘rough and ready’ stencils like this used for formal purposes. This was a warning on an electrical installation by the roadside.
I like the blend of informality with a serious purpose – but I wonder who would pay much attention to the warning?
