Poetry in the Subway

Few days ago late in the evening I was returning home by subway. And saw the stickers with poems of Francesco Petrarca on the carriage walls, in two languages together with the biography of the poet.

That's what I read: The train "Poetry in the Underground" is the unique project, aiming to make poetry treasures closer to the passengers, traveling underground. Project started in November 2010 with the publication of Chilean poetry as dedication to 200 years of independence of Chile.
2011 is the year of Russian-Italian friendship, so the walls of the cars have stickers with poems of Petrarca, Dante Alighieri and other famous Italian poets.

The train was discovered at Filiovskaya (light blue) line, Alexandrovsky Sad-Mezhdunarodnaya stations.
