The filming location name "Cologno Monzese, Milan, Lombardia, Italy"
http://www.imdb.com/search/title?locations=Cologno+Monzese,+Milan,+Lombardia,+Italy&ref_=ttloc_l...
is wrong because in English "Lombardia" is written "Lombardy". I wonder if "Lombardia" can be corrected with "Lombardy". If it is possible I would like to know what is the procedure. If it can not be correct, it is for me only a little detail, so I will stay indifferent. Thanks.
(Small note: I'm Italian and I live exactly in Lombardy)

Lorenz: I believe that there are actually more locations in IMDb listed as "Lombardia, Italy" than "Lombardy, Italy". This may not be how I would have listed the locations, but it is consistent with the IMDb guide to filming locations at http://www.imdb.com/updates/guide/locations:
  • Major cities and all country names are in English; smaller cities and locations can be listed in their native language.
Thus, there are a number of filming location entries in the database for "Milan, Lombardia, Italy"; Milan is a major city (thus not listed as Milano), Italy is a country (thus not listed as Italia), but Lombardy is neither and so it was allowed to beĀ entered in the database in the native language version, Lombardia.

I hope this helps.

Okay, I understand. Then, no problem: "Lombardia" remains written as it is now.
Thank you for your answer.
