Street Art in Milan

Since it was Monday all the galleries we wanted to visit were closed. So instead we walked around the city shooting street art.
Milan for a long time has been known for its design community.
We found some very interesting art. However, we had to keep our eyes on the ground. Milan has a lot of dogs, its a total status thing but, the residence of Milan don't pickup after their dogs. Poop is everywhere!!
Also, popular in Northern Italy is the Communist Party. (As seen in some of these photos).
Silvio Berlusconi, Italy's incendiary and entertaining Prime Minister said last month that he was not going to honor the 65 million Euros the country of Italy was going to reimburse Torino for hosting the games. He said he wasn't going to give those communists in the north any more money.
During the closing ceremony he was whistled at. Italians equivalent of booing.
