Very old signs (series 1920-1959) still in place in 2010:

Unfortunately, if you switch to 2015 imagery, they are already gone.
I know only another place in Italy where such signs are still in place.

I think they should be preserved.

It's simply a pity to throw away something that has been standing on the side of the road for 70-80 years and is now a rarity.
For example in Trieste, some WWII graffiti showing entrances to bomb shelters, are officially protected and cannot be deleted.

It's the US warning sign of a hidden dip ahead.
Its European equivalent is this:

Such a sign is not in use in many European countries. (As the set of signs varies across countries, strictly speaking there is no European standard.)

The Vienna convention declares the following sign as the default one for humps, dips and uneven road:



In may be replaced by this one



or by the dip warning sign.

I wonder, did they mean there are dartfrogs staring for the victim, or is there mating process... Too much poison. It's like to say that if you come here you'll be shot dead
