Yes I was joking, really thank you for your time. I hope our work could
help future import processes.

Done thank you

Ok, at the beginning when I found "Campanile" I said "this is
perfect!!" and I haven't search further...

Yes now I have understud and you are absolutely right, I fixed that and the
other similar cases (almost all the multipolygon).

Much better thanks.

BTW, how will you merge POI on nodes and POI on buildings? For example the

"Teatro Olimpico" is wrong both in the denomination and in the
localization. In order to not delete them I could keep both , but it could
be redundant .
If you struggle to follow this thread in English, we can continue in

No problem for the english but If we swith only to the talk-it how does the
community could authorize the import? How does this work?
Thanks again Andrea
