If you plan on driving in Italy, it helps to acquaint yourself with some of the Italian road signs. In general, the road signs in Italy conform to the most of the ones you will see in many European countries.
In the picture to the right, there are actually 2 Italian street signs. A circular sign, like the one you see on the left in the picture, is a sign of prohibition. This particular sign means that vehicles are prohibited in this area. This photo was taken in a marina with boats docked. You will also often see this sign in a "centro storico" or in the historical central district of town. Usually these older areas are vehicle-free because of the narrow streets, and also to reduce the pollution in these historic districts.
The triangular sign in the right part of the picture indicates a warning. In this instance, there is danger of falling into the water if you continue on the dock. Or in other words, if you ignore the Italian sign, you may be sleeping with the fishes! :-)
