Italian town of Lissone arranged a competition to find a sign and a slogan for itself.
Town with its surroundings is the most important area of producing wooden chairs in the world.
With my slight knowledge of Spanish and with help of Italian travel dictionary I read the regulations of the competition.
As I didn't get clear if sign proposals could be given alone, I also made a slogan, to be sure to fulfil the rules.
With the help of dictionary I brought about a sentence, which means in my opinion: "Correctly done, done in Lissone".
My sign didn't get any success, but the slogan was selected the best. Here it is:

Fatto ragione,
fatto a Lissone!
