I often travel the Val di Susa (Susa Valley, Piedmont) and I can't help noticing more and more NO TAV signs.
The readers who are not interested in the NO TAV question will perhaps look upon these photographs as curious images.

NO TAV is a movement of the population of the valley against the construction of a railway line of high-speed train (TAV) Turin - Lyon, in the construction of the so-called Corridor 5 that should connect across eastern Europe (beginning from Kiev), with the major cities of western Europe (including Turin, Marseille, Barcelona to Lisbon).
