21 april 2009: Giovanni told us that earlier that morning he'd seen a RAI mobile unit outside with the beloved "farfalla" logo decal mounted in such a way that he couldn't even describe. All he knew was that it was wrong.
Later that day, heading back to the office, on via Alessandro Farnese at viale Giulio Cesare, right there...
No...take a good look...
It's...er, upside-down! An Italian state television mobile unit van tooling around with an upside-down logo.
23 april 2009: i'm in the "Rome office" and (like all creatives and windows) i'm looking out the window, and what do i see parked out front across the street...?
GAAAAAAAAAHHH!!! It can't be! Zoom in!
It's the RAI upside-down logo mobile unit van! What do they want from me???
Okay, paranoid fit over. Actually the more observant of you will notice that we're looking at (what's considered in Italy) the driver's side of the van. The van shot on the 21st is taken from the passenger side. In fact, this van is larger than the van photographed on the 21st.
This means that the RAI has more than one MU with RAI butterflies mounted upside-down.
