Italians? Not so much:

A US weapons firm that turned Michelangelo’s most famous masterpiece - the David statue - into a gun-toting musketeer have come shot down [sic] by officials in Italy, with the country’s culture minister calling the move ‘offensive and illegal’.

Illinois-based weapon manufacturer ArmaLite used the iconic image of David in a new advertising campaign, manipulating the statue to make it appear to be holding a $3,300 AR-50A1 rifle.

But the move has outraged Dario Franceschini, Italy’s minister of culture, who said he is pursuing legal action to have ArmaLite withdraw the campaign.





I dunno. To me, David is lookin’ pretty good in that picture.
