G8 Summit in Italy

This week leaders of the world are meeting in L'Aquila, the capital of the earthquake devastated  region of Abruzzo, about 50 miles from Rome. When I returned to Rome from New York on June 28th there was extra security at the airport. As one can expect, there have been various demonstrations at important points in Rome. Here are some posters I go past each day as I commute to language classes. They are calling attention to the issue of world poverty.
Silvio Berlusconi, Prime Minister of Italy
Barak Obama, President of the United States
