Elsje and I live in an apartment just around the corner from Castello del Buonconsiglio (the Castle of Good Advice). Apparently (according to our tour of Trento) the castle was built on a hill that was originally named "Malconsiglio" (bad advice) - because it was the place they used to hang criminals (who had obviously followed some bad advice or they wouldn't have been hung). When the Bishop-Prince of Trento built his castle there he changed the name.
And I would have too.
