rossetti

Pre-Raphaelite artist (or transparent goby)

Dante Gabriel gets a mention for providing the more fetching icon picture, unless of course you're another Aphia minuta, or transparent goby. Then an Italian may well want to eat you. Rossetti are a tiny fish (only 6cm when full grown) and are caught off the Italian coast (especially around Rimini) and are often confused with bianchetti, and used as a substitute in dishes when the baby fish aren't available.
