This is a tribute to the Italian TV programm ‘Striscia la Notizia’ , the satyrical news programm created by A. Ricci, in sign of gratitude for the work of a group of journalists, who strive to spread critical common sense and make Italy a bit better.
This work tries to give a clear, simple message about the need for protection of Art in Italy and all over the world, because art is a wealth for all sorts of people: rich or poor, believers or non-believers, schooled or illiterate as they may be.
* A golden tapir is a sort of small statuette presented to any celebrity culprit of some nonsensical or silly behavior which has been made publicly ridiculous.
