The Metal Flows In My Veins Italy Travelogue...

My recent trip to Italy had nothing to do with metal. Instead, it was all about family, friends, wine, and so on. However, I did manage to find items that fit the themes of Metal Flows In My Veins.

Siena's Museum of Torture...

Note the future metalheads









San Gimignano's Museum of Torture





Florence's Museum of Serial Killers







Documents (from the replica in a Florence piazza near the Uffizi)...



The Crypt of the Capuchins...





This guy was awesome. A street performer in a piazza in Rome...

The instruments that changed the world...



The evidence that the Catholic Church refused to believe...



Galileo's final gesture to Catholicism? Not my picture, though.



My humble pilgrimage...





Yes, you guessed it, the t-shirt haul!



From...



The Opeth shirt came in handy on the plane ride back from Rome. Strangely enough, Neurosis were on the same flight! The shirt got notice from Steve Von Till, who commented on my hammer tattoo as we stood next to each other in baggage claim...

Dude, those are some sweet images. I've never seen that Opeth shirt before, nice catch. What a great story about Neurosis. Steve Von Till is the man.
