How it works:
- Cheap posters are placed on the floors of places with high foot traffic. These could be entrances, exits or streets/pathways.
- Should you step or brush again one, someone will come up to you, curse at you, and demand an inflated sum as compensation (e.g. 50-100 Euros) for damaging the poster.
Where to beware:
- Florence: Piazza del Duomo, Firenze Santa Maria Novella railway station, Accademia Gallery
What to do:
- Watch where you are going. If you are harassed, just decline and threaten to call the police, like what the locals do.
