Shop windows are the urban life places where vanity, fashion, appearance, sex appeal, consumerism, voyeurism, look, concentrate and express their own essence; the most important of this mix is the feminine seduction based on clothes, lingerie, mannequins. But sometimes the pleasure expressed by the windows plays striking contrast to the city's darkness and sadness located in surrounding buildings which menacingly are reflected in the windows. Maybe the real life is there, outside the shops - and the mannequins' faces themselves seem to be painful and distressed. More, in some windows appears the men's power symbols, so close to the mafia's look. At the end anyway the minacious skull of "vanitas" appears, concerning all.
