Street Artist Dresses Up Italian Village as 'The Internet'

Biancoshock has brought the village of Civitacampomarano into the 21st century, sort of

Street artist Biancoshock (who previously turned a series of manholes in Milan into tiny apartments) has unleashed a new project on the tiny Italian village of Civitacampomarano, population 400 or so, by turning it into the internet. That is to say, he labeled various parts of the town, which has minimal internet access and cell service, as different apps and websites. A local cafe where people congregate, for instance, is Google, a mailbox is Gmail, a single TV in a community center is Youtube, etc. That's one way to bring a town into the 21st century.
