Civitavecchia: old port of the papal navy...

Many Italians joke that if you see a lizard it will bring you good luck! One sees lots of them in and around Rome in gardens. They don't bite and they can even lose their own scaly tails.

One Sunday morning I was on my way visiting every chapel in the port of Rome, Civitavecchia. In this church the elderly porter pointed this lizard out and explained that the artist used it as his signature on his work!
