Street art and odd machinery

Our hotel (Albergo Cesàri) had an old typewriter (remember what these are?) and some sewing and laundry equipment scattered around. The building supposedly has been a hotel since 1787. It was well located between the Pantheon and the Trevi Fountain on a quiet street that had no car traffic but some restaurants with street seating nearby.

Some of the machinery seen in the hotel and at various points in the streets. Loosely calling door knockers machinery as well as this object made of green yarn:



We also so lots of people on the street constructing art. Several people were carving animals and flowers out of carrots. We saw people with cans of spray paint making paintings and others bending metal wire into various objects. Plus a couple of weird things including this guy in green.
