The Battle For The Walls

Alexander, Sidney
July 1953
New Republic;7/6/53, Vol. 128 Issue 27, p11
This article focuses on the differences between property owners and election campaigners over sticking posters on the walls, in Italy. The elections may be over in Italy, the election manifestos remain, reminding visitors if not residents of the brilliance, color, art and bitterness which Italians employ in electing their government. The action of the Fiesole property owner in ripping the posters off his walls raises the question: Does a man own the walls of his own house? The law says he does, but common practice says he does not at least, not during an election campaign.
