Nothing wrong with italian note/fixme tags in a region where Italian is 
spoken. What I find wrong is automatically generated fixme tags, 
particularly looking at some of them 

- Some are like "Import CTR Veneto. Collegare ways. Integrare con sport=* 
  e surface*" on leisure=pitch 

The lack of sport=* on the import shouldn't be in a fixme. Maybe the 
instructions should require that the importer checks all leisure=pitch 
and adds sport information, but I routinely tag sports fields without 
knowing the surface, and I'll also tag them without knowing the sport. 
It's not an error, it's incomplete data. 

- Others are like "Import CTR Veneto. Controllare se historic=memorial" 
on historic=monument 

This is an instruction to the importer, but taginfo shows that these
get left on and uploaded.
