Photos: Statue Street Performers in Italy

I absolutely love the culture in Italy, from the food to the art, I just always want to be out and about wandering the streets. There are a lot of buskers in Italy, nearly every city and town that I went through had someone playing an instrument or doing some other type of interesting performance. One that I noticed more than others though were these street performers that dress up like statues, staying perfectly still for hours, only moving when someone puts a coin in their tin. I can’t imagine the patience that it must take to stay completely still for that long, and also be able to stay in their costumes in the heat of the day.

Here are some photos of some of the street performers that I came across in Italy.
