Neon Maria

5 Jul


I usually find these “madonelle,” small shrines to the Virgin Mary on the side of buildings, in Trastevere. But I saw this one in the Monti neighborhood the other day, and the best part?


Of course I was bummed to see that it wasn’t lit up, and I am so curious to know if it does go on at night… Maybe it flashes too. That would be the best.

Here is a link to more “little Madonnas” if you’re so inclined.

    You have to post a pic of the flashing Madonna. You owe it to all of us!

    If only it would flash… a girl can dream…
