Naked Julianne Moore billboard banned from Venice. Titian would be amused
The billboard for the renowned luxury brand shows the red-haired Moore laying on a chaise lounge with a discreetly placed handbag and two lion cubs. It was to decorate the Doge's Palace, which overlooks St Mark's Square and the city's lagoon.
But according to the Daily Mail, the newly-elected mayor Giorgio Orsoni called the poster "inappropriate" and demanded that it be replaced by a less risque image. "An advertisement showing a nude woman on a divan is not appropriate for St Mark's Square," he told Italian media.
