Officials Take Down Da Vinci Code Banner

Italian officials have agreed to remove a Da Vinci Code movie banner from the renovation scaffolding facade of the church of St. Pantaleo (located near Rome’s historic center) because it has been “causing a problem”. The large outdoor Da Vinci Code billboard (featuring the Mona Lisa key art) has been the subject of complaints from church clergymen:

“It advertises something that is against Christ and against the church,” St. Pantaleo’s rector, the Rev. Adolfo Garcia Duran, told The Associated Press.

Buildings and scaffolding serving as outdoor advertising spaces is nothing new, and is not limited to Europe. (And complaints about large The Da Vinci Code billboards is not new either.) A large vinyl banner/billboard on the side of a building is known as a tall wall, and is quite common in large cities, especially in Los Angeles.

No word if anyone was offended by The Da Vinci Code outdoor banners featuring Tom Hank’s new hairstyle.

    Der Da Vinci Code ist eine gute UCHRONIE.

    Diese Uchronie ist nicht unwahrscheinlicher als die Fabeln der Kirche.
    Die “Templiers” sind nicht wegen Blasphemie von Philippe Le Bel und vom Papst erledigt worden.
    Sie waren einfach zu mächtig und zu reich für die Karolinger geworden.
    Den “Templiers” das Geheimnis der Tochter Jesus: Sarah anhängen zu wollen,
    ist eine schöne kontrafaktische Geschichte.
    Warum sollten wir aber nicht daran glauben ?
    Müssen wir den eidesstaatlichen Versicherungen vom Opus Dei und ihrer Benedikten glauben ?

    Reasonable size poster , not quite a building wrap.I remember seeing a huge wrap in Rotterdam whenever they had the Euro Football Tournament of Edgar Davids, it was on the side of a possibly 30 story building and visible for miles!
