My local town – Cesena in Italy – is trying to improve its standing as a European city.

Its credibility in this area isn’t helped by the rubbish translations of guidebooks and street signs.

Here’s an example outside an underground car park.

From the instructions – “lower the mast” – you might be forgiven for thinking it’s also a place to leave your boat.

I particularly like the menacing “No One Shall Remain In The Car!”
