Signage with historical Italian street names in Koper violate the law

Koper, 5 April - Culture inspectors have found the signage with Italian historical names of squares and streets in the centre of Koper to violate the Slovenian language law, because they have no Slovenian translation. The city of Koper has appealed the decision, but the appellate body, the Culture Ministry, has upheld it.
