Fried Food & Ice Cream

Sign, fried food shop, LivornoThis is the funny sign of a fried food shop in “Piazza XX Settembre”. “6 fritto” in Italian means literally “you are fried” and colloquially “you are done”.Old fashioned ice cream sign, LivornoA quite old fashioned sign outside a bar in “Piazza Mazzini”.

Funny signs. I rarely eat anything fried, if you don't count French fries.
