I came across this scene a few days ago and I couldn't resist to snap a photo! The two local police agents spot this ancient and rather pictoresque "Ape" Piaggio (among top five italian icons) and stop contemplating. There is an evident no-parking sign right on the corner but the agents seem to be considering that the funny tricycle bears the evidence of a well known antiques/junk shop located a few steps ahead, called "Mercatino dell'Antico Bra".
Eventually the lady agent begins to write down the fine, while her colleague looks almost 
guilty...

Any idea for a fitting title?

Fantastica anche questa, Valeria.

Mi piace molto il tuo blog format, è custom made oppure uno standard? Vorrei anche io la pagina così "grande" come la tua...

Baci,
Lola/Ele
