Italy leaves its mark

ItaliaThe Italian President Romano Prodi and Minister of Culture Francesco Rutelli unveiled a new website,  logo and slogan for Italy this week.   The website is at www.italia.it, the logo is as pictured here and the slogan is “Italy leaves its mark”.

Like others, I suspect,  I wondered whether the green splodge was in some way meant to depict Italy’s land mass, but apparently it’s supposed to convey “movement, flexibility and imagination”.   Hmmm…
