This cracks me up:
The illustrations on the banknotes show generic examples of architectural styles such as renaissance and baroque rather than real bridges from a particular member state, which could have aroused envy among other countries. “The European Bank didn’t want to use real bridges so I thought it would be funny to claim the bridges and make them real,” Stam told Dezeen.
The article headline is “Fictional bridges on Euro banknotes constructed in the Netherlands.” Perhaps this will prove a broader and subtle metaphor for making the eurozone actually work…
For the pointer I thank Joel Cazares.
