每日英語跟讀 Ep.K391: About Italy - Italian coffee shop fined $1,050 for failing to display price of espresso
An Italian coffee shop owner is in hot water after being fined $1,050 for failing to display the cost of a $2.12 espresso.
The owner of the Ditta Artigianale cafe in Florence has been punished by police after a customer reported him at the end of April for not advertising his prices as legally required.
Inspector Leonardo Magnolfi, of Florence local police, told CNN Thursday that a male customer reported the cafe for not displaying the price of the coffee behind the counter － as law dictates.
Police followed up the complaint and fined the shop $1,050 after verifying that the price was indeed absent.
Thieves use mechanical diggers to tear open Italian security van 盜賊用機械挖土機把義大利運鈔車大卸八塊
Thieves used mechanical diggers on Wednesday to prise open an armored van on a highway in southern Italy and made off with more than 2 million euros in cash, police said.
The blue security van had left the city of Bari and was carrying pensions to be distributed in post offices in nearby Matera when it was blocked on the road by two lorries.
Two diggers then tore open the vehicle, using their mechanical arms like can openers to gain access to the cash.
The lorries were then set ablaze as the hooded thieves escaped with their loot in a waiting car. The three guards in the van were unharmed.
