The work by Piccolo-Clovis-Scano is a sound derive in the Isola neighborhood looking for all the buildings with number 13 or 17. It's called VIXI, from the anagram of the Roman numeral for XVII. VIXI means "I lived", implying not living any longer, hence the Italians' superstitious fear of the number 17 (though nobody remembers why!)
April 17: Right on schedule for VIXI, the police raid the Stecca degli Artigiani and try to close down Isola Art Center. For the moment they have not succeeded... fortunately some of the valiant crew were on hand at 6 in the morning to ask for a search warrant. The law enforcement ossifers were utterly sans papiers.
