The biker farm

A long and difficult fight had to be combatted to establish the rights of pedestrians against the excessive power of the car world.

People with bicycles joined the struggle to establish that security of bystanders was more important than traffic fluidity.

The golden rule emerged: the pedestrian is always right!

A bit emphatic but justified by the urgency of protecting the position of the weakest, and still majoritarian, actor.

But then the revolution came, creating new spaces and rights for the bikers.

And they immediately used their newly gained position to expand their area of action and relaunch the watchword that old drivers had always invoked: everything is allowed to permit a better transit of (our) vehicles.

And the fight is starting again …….

The fight among the bull and the donkey

Travelling through Spain you can’t avoid remarking the big black figures of bull disseminated along the road.

Starting as an advertisement for an alcohol company, the bull has become the symbol of a certain Spain, and you can find it stuck on the back of many cars (mainly red cars).

Then the donkey came, spreading out from Catalunya in order to propose an alternative identification of Spanish soul.

As shown below, the outline is not dissimilar, the bull’s horns matching the donkey’s ears, but the message is rather inconsistent.

We opted for the donkey (our car is gray).
