800 naked 'Barbie' dolls in piazza to protest female abuse

(ANSA) - Bassano del Grappa, August 22 - A total of 800 naked plastic dolls will be scattered across the medieval central square of this northern Italian town on Saturday to protest violence against women. "We're using dolls that are a little smaller and lighter than the classic Barbie, which will be thrown on the ground," said artist Anna Piratti. The performance-art piece invites passersby to pick up the dolls and dress them with clothing provided by organizers. "We ask people not to take the dolls away," said Piratti, "but if we lose a few it's no big deal".
