ALLIGATORS ARE OK, BUT NO SELFIE STICKS PLEASE

Italian Alligator sighting in the museum’s garden.

Galleria d’Italia Art Museum  was another  stop on my Milan visit.  A smaller but  enjoyable museum in a beautiful building.

But, just as interesting as the art, I also came to realize that hundreds of public attractions have now waged war on the selfie-stick.  This museum and many other places in Italy, have posted signs banning the selfie-stick.  Later googling the subject, I came to realize that public places all over the world are banning the obtrusion for many reasons.   Not that I have any objection.  While maybe there is place and time for a selfie-stick,  I tend to agree with one writer,  who renamed it the “narcisstick”.    :  )  That said,  I hope you enjoy the following photos of the Galleria d’Italia……
