I don’t know what annoys me most : the refusal to see the nakedness of sculptures (therefore not real people, but just more or less idealised bodies in bronze or marble usually), or the fact it could be an anticipation of the Italian government in order to please the Iranian president (and gain more contracts). Either, it doesn’t excuse Rome for covering art!
The human body is simply us and beautiful in its many forms, refusing to see/show it (and even more as a simple sculpture!), is like denying ourself: this is nonsense!
