A spelling mistake on an Italian road is becoming an internet hit.

Workers were changing markings in beach town of Sabaudia, when they painted ‘Sotp’ instead of ‘Stop’.

The typo caused amusement among residents and has helped to break the monotony of the coronavirus lockdown.

A photo of the error was posted by Giada Gervasi, the mayor of Sabaudia, on her Facebook page. People even suggested that the typo should be maintained as a tourist attraction.

However, the mayor promised a quick correction. “Sotp will return to Stop,” she wrote. “It’s a small mistake that maybe made you smile!”
