Falling Rock Signs from Italy

Toscany, 1998; pict. M. De Dier
Toscany, VI.2006; pict. H. De Meyer

The modern sign on mainland Italy, Sardinia and Sicily is as dull as a sign can be. This find, however, is nevertheless most interesting for the more educated visitor.

Caduta Massi
is a famous actress in Martin Amis' novel Money.

...
'_ Yes?'
'John Self? It's Caduta Massi'
'At last', I said. 'Caduta, it's an honour.'
'John, it's good to talk to you. But before we
    meet I want to sort some things out.'
'Like what, Caduta?'
'For instance, how many children do you think
    I should have?'
...
(Money - a suicide note, Martin Amis)

Pozzuoli, 14.IV.2014; pict. H. De Meyer

This very same design was found in Denmark and its Faroe Islands.

Vesuvius, 15.IV.2014; pict. H. De Meyer

This very nice wooden sign features a design that is nowhere else found.
