Counterfeiting in Italy, EU and across the globe is a multi billion dollar business with international operations and various methods of illegally smuggling goods across borders. On the ground, selling fake designer products is an entry point for eastern european and african immigrants in the undeclared labor market of Rome and vendors can be seen displaying their wares in popular tourist spots throughout the city. The sign painted over serendipitously reads: “galleria riservata al transito del viaggiatori per motivi di sicurezza e vietato sostare” “gallery is reserved for transit of travelers, for security reasons do not stand” I took the photo at Piazzo della Rovere, hence the title Vatican2
