Pippa Bacca, performance artist, is murdered during "Brides on Tour"

Italian performance artist Pippa Bacca, hitchhiking from Milan to Tel Aviv in a wedding dress as part of a performance piece promoting peace, was raped and killed in Turkey.

I picked up today’s New York Times to read about the death of Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo, an Italian performance artist who went by the name Pippa Bacca. I was unfamiliar with her work but found her final piece particularly daring and her rape and murder tragic.
