If you have ever stumbled across the Italian Avant-garde magazine Toilet Paper, you have probably had a laugh, but maybe left somewhat bewildered. The recent issue of the ongoing collaboration between Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari is no less amusing and confusing.

The “Saluti da Rimini” project riffs on tacky vacation postcards and trifles with stereotypes of Italian seaside resorts. Surprisingly, posters from the issue are plastered around the Adriatic seaside resort city of Rimini, including at the very appropriate piazzale Fellini.
