Vandalism, Febbruary 2017[edit]

Hey Guys! Someone had vandalised the resource of Milena Sterio, deleting the source of her Book ( I have put again the source of her Book) , she talks of Italy as a great power , Would be good if we pay more attention against persons that are here only for vandalised.LuigiPortaro29 (talk) 20:55, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Umbria, not Ombria[edit]

The "Ombria" link in the description "The Marmore's Falls in Ombria" is incorrect, it should be "Umbria". Ombria takes you to a Wikipedia article about Toadstone. 71.95.63.155 (talk) 22:07, 11 April 2017 (UTC)

Italy has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites (51) than any other country in the world, and has rich collections of art, culture and literature from many different periods. The country has had a broad cultural influence worldwide, also because numerous Italians emigrated to other places during the Italian diaspora. Furthermore, the nation has, overall, an estimated 100,000 monuments of any sort (museums, palaces, buildings, statues, churches, art galleries, villas, fountains, historic houses and Italy is super poor AND (Redacted) archaeological remains).[1] ASIAN (talk) 17:48, 3 May 2017 (UTC)

images of law enforcement and architecture.[edit]

Hello @LuigiPortaro29: Please assume good faith in my edits and stop with this arrogance of telling me to know more about Italy. How do you want to know that i do not, merely by seeing when i change an image? Regarding the image on the architecture section. Here it is, obviously about architecture and not about the Gardening style of the royal park. So either one takes an image which captures the archtitecture of the building or one looks for another image that might fit in there beautifully. Now regarding the image on the section of Law enforcement. Indeed the Lamborghini looks great. But it is not the average police car and not representative. WP is surely not a website that promotes the best of the best of everything but is an encyclopaedia and aims to portray a neutral realistic image. Of course in the main article of Law enforcement in Italy one can add this image of the Lambo, but not in the article of Italy itself. Regarding the image of the aircraft carrier, i have after the edit summary no objections and the image can stay.--Joobo (talk) 14:00, 6 May 2017 (UTC)

You are changing images without a consultation, your images you want to see here are without an agreement with other people, then we are talking about a World Heritage Site like the Caserta Palace , so it is better to leave this image where all its beauty stands out. The same as for the Lamborghini of the Italian Police, the Italian police are the "only" "G7" nation that Have "Supercars" also because Italy is "famous" in the "world" for "fastest" Supercars as the Lamborghini, lately the Bologna Police has had "another" Lamborghini Huracán, That's why this Lamborghini photo has always been here. It is not a fact that we trying to show things that are not real, indeed, the police in Italy use these machines, every day and Often, so I see no reason to change the photos. LuigiPortaro29 (talk) 16:07, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
Usually one is not obliged to get agreements in advanced by other users to include other or new images. Unless there is disagreement of course. Then a consensus needs to be found. Regardless for how long the Lambo was in this article it is simply not representative for Italy's police as a whole. Also Italy is definitely not the only one of the G7 Nations that got police "supercars". Germany has them, Netherlands (rich western nation) has them, the US has them the UK has them. But that is not even the point here, even IF italy would be the only one. It still is not representative for Italies Police force. It is not that Italy would not use them, sure they do. But it just is creating a distorted image. Regarding the picture of the Caserta Palace. Well it is a World Heritage Site but it is not about the "beauty" of the whole site that has to stand out, but it is about the "architecture". A gardening is no architecture. --Joobo (talk) 16:20, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
My dear, for sure you are not the right one to tell if the Lamborghini is fit or not for the Italian police, I don't was talking about Netherlands, I was talking of the G7 , and I don't know if they use a Ferrari or a Lamborghini in their police forces, the Italian police buy a very world-famous car like Lomborghini, there a reason. And you are not the right one to tell if the Lamborghini can not represent the Italian police as a whole. Italy is the country of the Supercars, And that is why Italy is famous in the World.Maybe I may seem presumptuous, but this is the truth my dear. Therefore, lamborghini is always used by the police, at the same time Lamborghini has a history with Italy of great importance. LuigiPortaro29 (talk)16:56, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
I actually can agree with what you say here. Italy is a country with many supercars and the police uses it. It is all true. And i would encourage you to include such an image in the main article of the Law enforcement in Italy article. However these supercars are not the standard vehicles of the Italian police. How many of them are active on patrol 20, 30? at most. It is simply not the common and ususal police car in Italy. And that is why a realistic neutral image should be used here in this article of the country of Italy. In the particluar law enforcement article, sure one can and should include that pic, but nor here.--Joobo (talk) 18:05, 6 May 2017 (UTC)
