Just love those Polizia 159s with their fantastic livery - especially the white stripes flowing from the top of the scudetto along the crease lines of the bonnet. Only the Italians would take so much care to ensure that their police cars have style!

I saw a 2.4 159 Polizia on duty in Bologna in July, rather knocked about it was.

You took a photo of the Carabinieri (military police), seems they are friendlier than ordinary coppers

Do they have different jurisdiction? They seem to be scattered side by side. There is also a 3rd on green and white cars...

Slightly different jurisdictions but frankly I am not so sure. The white and green police are the traffic coppers.
