How it works:
- Opening: you may be approached to sign a petition such as for the deaf and mute charity (sham organization) or a petition against drugs.
- Set-up: if you sign, you will be asked for a donation. While distracted, someone may steal from you too.
Places to beware:
- Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo
- Milan: Il Cenacolo, Bellagio, Varenna
- Rome: Castel Sant Angelo, Piazza di Pietra
- Venice: St. Mark’s Square, Ponte di Rialto, Ponte dell'Accademia, Canal Grande
