Rome is still fertile

A recent stunt in Rome colored the water in the famous Trevi Fountain a deep red. It's interesting because red can suggest so many things- both positive and negative- and in this context the guerilla artist commented that it represents a "Rome that's still menstruating, Rome that has not entered menopause yet, can still have children, is still fertile." Blood can be life giving and life letting.
