This is another of my "semiologic short-circuitings." This pseudo-street sign concentrates on the shape of the letter I, the leaning tower of Pisa. The title, Tourism, is an ironic commentary on the superficial approach of those who emphasize only some distinctive elements of the site they are visiting. The position of the tower has nothing to do with the value of the monument, and of the city.
