Two giraffes, facing opposite directions; is it a metaphor, or just a groovy image? Either way, we like – enough to include it here at any rate.

Is it Arnie? Regardless, this piece caught our eye in downtown Trastevere as a perfect example of the cinematic obsessions currently swirling through Roman street art. Expect plenty of these on any graffiti-based tour of the Italian capital.
