Miseria Signore in Venice

At first The Gypsy Beggar Women  in Venice appear as dramatic as the cityscape that surrounds them. Kneeling on the pavement, head down and cup out, not making a sound. It is like theatre.

Truth be told the beggars in Venice commute to work on the train from the mainland. This is their job. The vision of them sleeping in the cold dark streets at night that unsuspecting tourists have works to the beggar’s advantage from time to time.
