Laverna was the Roman goddess of thieves, cheats and crooks. She had her own sanctuary in Rome on Aventine Hill, near Porta Lavernalis, the city gate named after her. Before heading out to steal, thieves would go and seek her blessings. The street that runs there today is called Via di Porta Lavernale. For this work I produced a replica of the marble Via di Porta Lavernale street sign and replaced the original with the duplicate.
