Bees: a public service message

I love reading the posters that are found around Florence. They are both art and public service messages. Although my photo isn’t the best, I hope you can see that this poster celebrates the bee!

The text tells us (roughly translated by me) that “thanks to the untiring activity of the bees, life goes forward: they travel about 150,000 kilometers to produce a kilogram of honey. They gather nectar from a combined surface equal to 4000 times the surface of the Florence cathedral dome.”

That’s a very big dome!
