Earlier this month, PD discussed tourists courting death for the best cliff-side Instagram shot. What we didn’t go into was that when it comes to bodily harm, getting just the right shot also pertains to Rome’s Trevi Fountain.
The Italian Polizia were called last week to break up a fight between two tourists dueling for the same spot for their perfect Trevi selfie.
Ultimately, eight people were involved in the social media brawl.
#BigGovernment Steps In
A few slaps and punches later, and there are now talks about the Italian Government designating a special Trevi Fountain Line, where tourists will be able to take their shots one at a time, under guarded protection.
Another Big Government approach also being discussed would be the one attempted last year, where tourists were made to go single file in front of the fountain without the ability to stop and take photographs.
Surely in the future the One World Government will create a special lottery where select ’Grammers can tour the planet without interference and take photographs for the benefit of the collective populace.
Until then, you can always Photoshop out the blood spatter.
