Roman Tagging

Rome, Italy

 

Everyone hates "tagging"

But some tagging is more important than other tagging. Some tagging becomes timeless.

While photographing an arch on the Appian Way, I saw this "graffiti".

I wondered what the conservative citizens of Rome thought of this work back in say... 50 A.D.

Were they annoyed, were they angry? Did it threaten them?

Every city has it's taggers, and Rome is no exception.

But some of their tagging signified the beginnings of one of the worlds great religions.
