Madonna of the Rose

This afternoon I noticed that someone had added a rose to the shrine known as the Madonna dei Gondolieri (Madonna of the Gondoliers).

I wonder if the local press (in particular, Il Gazzettino) would see this as one more sign of the inexorable degrado (degradation), into which the city is slipping at the hands of its (foreign) visitors!

The shrine, which dates back to the year 1563, adorns the Ponte della Paglia.
