    I'm wondering if Thijs means not mainland Italy? There is also Elba but I cannot match that scene yet. What made me think Italy was partly the roof tiles and also the crenellations on the wall, which are Ghibelline in style. I had to check the spelling of that, but it goes back a few centuries and the style of battlement depended on whether you were for or agin the Pope, i.e. Ghibelline or Guelph, or vice versa! The latter had the common-or-garden square crenellations, I think.

        Well, I know nothing about f1 races, so that's no help for me, anyway.

          I think Uncle Thijs is doing a bit of an Ombugge on us here! I reckon that whilst not 'in Italy', it is somewhere that is absolutely 'in Italy' - as in completely surrounded by Italy, whilst not being Italy!

                  For the motor racing? I believe they also play football there.

                      Re: What place is this?

                      yes you have it Ivy,about the f1 hint,they have a F1 race, the GP of San Marino,but they don't have a circuit.
                      its a political thing,Italy a big racing car country with many spectators,so the FIA wanted a second GP there,but you can't have 2 GP's,so they made it the GP of San marino,which is driven on the circuit of Imola located in Italy but 100 km away from San marino.

                      F1 followers know that that circuit will always be membered of the black weekend in 1994

                        Thank you, Thijs. I do like your cryptic [raadselachtig?] clues, they add a bit of fun to the puzzling.

                        So what place is this?

                            I'm afraid not, Ombugge.
