I just had to know why:
"The coastal town of Eraclea, near Venice, prohibits the building of sandcastles on the beaches because they can "obstruct the passage" of people strolling along the strand."

And here, I thought the mayor might be afraid that they were filled with little sand armies that might march forth and cause, I don't know, parking problems?


But this sandcastle is a knockout!
