The city of Livorno sells Clet’s “deteriorated street signs” to the highest bidder


The city of Livorno, a port city on the western coast of Tuscany, has placed the modified street signs – hallmarks of french artist Clet Abraham, up for auction on ebay. Il Tirreno’s Claudia Nanni reports that the artist, whose stickered street signs have appeared in over 30 cities, in Italy and abroad, found his way to the seaside town where he “improved” more than 50 street signs. The street artist’s oeuvre hasn’t been appreciated by everyone: in Florence and Pistoia, he was issued a ticket for 400 euros ($535,36.) Livorno hopes to sell the signs along with other materials, such as vehicles and furniture, to raise funds.
