I love that old 500. It's absolutely gorgeous!
Despite the fact we make a lot of jokes about the Carabinieri, I quite respect them. I would like to think of them as honest persons. Again, private matters are private matters. However, would you trust a person representing the State, knowing that he/she has an affair (or several affairs.....) and may be 1 or 2 kids at home with the actual wife/husband. I think I would be reluctant. If the marriage is not happy, and one wants back his/her freedom, there is always the divorce. Better than cheating.
