And on scrawled on a sign at the entrance to Via Appia Antica was this rather touching plea - though given the speed with which on coming traffic approaches the marito would have to have keen sight or be, like us, on foot.
To my husband from your wife - I love you - come back.

What it means, very loosely translated, is: Here no one will starve to death.
Silly observations that suggest perhaps I should get a more interesting life but ....
