Two Ukrainian tourists have scratched their names on a fresco by one of the greatest geniuses of the Renaissance, Raphael Santi. The incident has since caused outrage on social media, with demands that a probe into this shocking act of vandalism be carried out.
Italian Renaissance painter and architect Raphael painted in 1508-1517 with his apprentices the Stanza della Segnatura ("Room of the Signatura") frescoes located in the Vatican.
A new work by Banksy appeared on the wall of a building in Bristol on the eve of Valentine's Day. The picture shows a young girl aiming from a slingshot at the sky, and a red explosion painted on the wall on the top right. The work lasted only 48 hours before the inscription "BCC W *** ERS" appeared on it.
