Default The benefits of foresight.

Italians are noted for their style and so they should be. It would give me nothing but pleasure to wear n Italian suit with fine leather shoes from Florence and a perfectly fitting shirt from The tailors of Rome.
They know how to dress, those italians. They also know how to walk, drink coffee, make wine, cook pasta and, above all, park their cars.

A famous Australian once said:"The best way to see Darwin is from 40 000 ft on your way to Florence."
Never have truer words been spoken.

Making the car short enough to allow for parking perpendicularly to the street was part of the original specification for that car line. The car is 2.5m long. It is not an Italian car, it was a German-Swiss collaboration. The car is sold in Australia, if you are interested.

The Smart Fortwo shown is of the second generation, which is longer than the 2.50m of the first generation.

The car is well placed in front of the 'no parking' sign which made me smile.

Best regards,
Michael

Tom, I just had the most brilliant Italian meal in the middle of nowhere, about 10,000kms from Aus and about the same from Italy. Spectacular food, wonderful people (good wine too).

One does wonder at the duration of this parking venture. Should he return he will fin himself thoroughly parked in.
I could be mistaken as the the gender of the driver. The lid is down after all.

One must add that the diligance of such skillful parking is passed on from generation to generation by genetics no less.

A superb picture! The value of the oblique lines and the yellow is particularly appreciated by me. These resonate with my ideas on yellow signage for marking roadways, giving warnings and condoning of areas!
