Turzo : Turzo is a form of graffiti, from Italy. The Turzo-er (Turzo artist) applies graffiti onto existing, typically historic, monumental sculpture in such a way that it responds, highlights or addresses the form or meaning of the existing sculpture. This is different from regular graffiti which is just image/ text applied onto a wall. Turzo is typically humorous, political and unfortunately illegal. Some people think the word comes from combining Turf and Zone, but they are wrong.
