I remember the signs.
They are unique, arty and also funny!

The municipality must be laughing all the way to the bank.

I think Clete Abraham is clever and has a good sense of humor. Maybe selling street signs on eBay is the way for Livorno to solve its financial problems.

I would not have sold these traffic signs.
I would have put them into the municipal museum.
