wucumprà?


Here an image of some "Wucumprà" , so we call them. They are typically from africa and here they try to sell their false griffed bags in all the streets. Here a moment during the finish of Campo dei Fiori market. They prepare the bag exposition on the roof and , if police pass, they thake in one second all bags away inside the white blanket and they run away ... It really funny because the people in the sqare often advise them about police arriving.

Qui un immagine a noi nota dei "Wucumprà" . Provano a vendere le loro borse griffate in campo dei fiori quando il mercato sta per finire. E' curioso come gli altri venditori che hanno il banco al campo , li avvisano dell'arrivo della polizia e in un attimo scappano con le loro borse avvolte nella coperta bianca che usano per la loro esposizione.

Venice has a similar shot today! It's a tough life so I am sympathetic. Good shot!
