    Procuratrice .. di conflitti (Procurator ... of conflicts)

    This vignette is generally understandable in Argentina and even more in Italy (limited to the soccer fans though).
    I hope You don't mind if I don't explain it. After all it's their business and we'd better avoid to "shake too much waters", as we say ...

    what they are saying but the artwork is first class.

    [*]Thank You, dear Gary! I explain with few simple statements and let You match them up and figure out what it's all about (without a translation which wouldn't adequately clarify all implications).

    • The two soccer players are Mauro Icardi and Maxi Lopez (Argentinians)
    • They play respectively with Inter (Milan) and Torino (Turin) teams
    • Inter and Milan town has a Biscione, like Alfa Romeo, i.e. big grass snake as symbol, while Torino has a bull (Toro) both for the team and the town.
    • The lady is Wanda Nara, formerly Maxi Lopez' wife now Mauro Icardi's.
    • The latter started an affair while she was married to the former and the two gentlemen were friends and he was often hosted by Maxi and Wanda..
    • Snake may represent a treacherous traitor popularly (so Icardi is seen among most Argentinians fans and therefore coaches never call in the their national soccer team as he would probably deserve).
    • The bull is horned and in Italian, since centuries, the term cornuto, i.e. horned, refers to men cheated on by wives, a little bit like cucks although not really precisely, since theres no implication of husband's awareness or willingness (or not). In ancient times cornuto was more extensive comprising also female members in the family, like sisters or cousins, who didn't behave "correctly".
    • So Mauro Icardi, ina self-defence attempt, suggests that horns of Maxi Lopez could come from being part of Toro team, while Maxi Lopez observes that Mauro Icardi correctly plays with the Snake team.
    • Moreover Wanda Nara recently messed up in a procurator role, i.e. as husband's representative for a contract upgrade. So there's a pun in the title about her "procuring" a new contract too and troubles in both cases (she impudently forced Inter to anticipate a new contract by moving around far before contract expiration and also Inter planned upgrading timing).



    I hope all it's clear now and this was just for fun, since, quite obviously, it was up to them all to mind their business according to their own personal ethical concepts ...

    I recognise the players!.. Didn''t know about this drama. I watched the video that he didn't wanted to shake hands before a match... He has his reason I think .. The lady change to a younger pretty boy. (With a better bank account) Love can be a ugly thing.

    Ahahah. Are You implying it's not all due to some sort of true love kiss? LOL
    Actually she was also popular in Argentina by herself, as a sort of provocative, curvy model or starlet or something like that I undestand. Nonetheless everybody must plan for aging and I understood Maxi Lopez wasn't exactly the most respectful husband, but learning it afterwards makes it all suspect ... Anyway .... drama is still going on with Maradona fiercely opposing his call into Argentinian's national team (backed by most of the players too) and their coach, Bauza, still unable to take such a decision.
