This is an article of mine that was published in Italy Magazine yesterday and I hope it makes you smile:

A pizzeria owner in Trento [Trentino-Alto Adige], tired of having to have the front door of his premises repaired, has placed the following notice in his window:

“Dear respected thieves,

If you think you will find money here which will improve the quality of your lives – which we doubt – please try to enter by the back door. [We are fed up with repairing the front one.]”

Altin Plaku told the local newspaper L’Adige that there have been six attempted break-ins in five years and that the thieves must think his premises are a bank.

Last Sunday night two men tried to force the front door with an axe but were spotted by a neighbour and fled.

Some thieves are exceptionally stupid...

... but then again maybe it was six different lots of thieves!

Or maybe one lot who really liked leftover pizza!

Perhaps they were simply hungry?
