A sinister stencil marking territory of the S.S.C.Napoli football team hardcore supporters – the Ultras.Taken in the via Tribunali area of the city, an area that has a certain sense of menace for the casual visitor at least!
This delightful, small stencil (about 5″) has survived for getting on for two years now, probably because the ivy obscures it in the summer. I pass it regularly on the way to a friend’s house near to me.

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?
