Como the town is full of beautiful buildings and squares. It is akin to an upscale shopping center with immaculate streets, chock-a-block fashionable stores, and tony restaurants. It is largely populated by people who look like they stepped out of a Prada advertisement. There is also a sprinkling of poor immigrants to remind you of the world's inequities and to point out the artificiality of this place.

The resistance in Como
 

Dear tourists,

Welcome to Como.

Since you are here, please be aware that this place is currently governed by a far right coalition that destroyed most of the cultural initiatives in town and has waged a hateful war on the poor.

Hope you enjoy your stay.

Water cleanup machine
 
Como the city lies at the southern end of Como the lake so floating garbage tends to accumulate here. This machine gathers up floating trash for disposal elsewhere.
