Francesco Sans Bottle

"So where's the bottle?" I asked Francesco. "Upstairs," he replied. I was curious about what led him to walk around with a bottle on his head. He said the idea came to him about 12 years ago, when the economy took a nosedive. He figured it would attract the attention of tourists with their cameras. He was right. So then he went all over Europe with his act. Made a good living. And now? "It's just a way of expressing myself," Francesco said.
