Italian toilet humour

at the Bolzano Museum of Modern Art in Italy a toilet which flushes to the sound of Italy's national anthem has been impounded by police.

"The prosecution... argue the symbolism of playing the anthem while flushing a toilet is an offence to the nation..."

Surely if this is the case it would be an offence to the artwork if this is seen as an offence?

Ugh... I shudder at the thought of hearing the Dutch anthem when flushing....

Did it also make a sound when "using" it, by the way, or was there no mention of that?

Just asking...
