Imperia or Imperia (city) ?[edit]

I don't agee the solution "Imperia (city)". We have a lot of Provinces of Italy and every one has the main city with the same name. So for Imperia I think that it's not necessary to specify that's a city! We have Province of Rome and Rome; Province of Genoa and Genoa. So we have Province of Imperia and Imperia. It's not necessary else. --DenghiùComm (talk) 17:57, 6 October 2009 (UTC)

As you can see in en:Imperia, de:Imperia, nl:Imperia, ru:Империя (значения), sr:Imperija, tl:Imperia, uk:Імперія (значення) ... there are many Imperia's outside Italy (already 5 or 6 on Commons, so 10 to 30 in a year time). The fact that there are Imperia sculpture images found here proves that there is a need for disambiguation. We cannot say that we have a naming "system" but for each category name define a "priority" one because these priorties are too much culture/country/subject dependent. Genoa will be disambiguated sooner or later too; I think that only for cities with an extremely large cultural/historical heritage, such as Rome, Paris, London, Venice ... their "priority" will be maintained for practical reasons. So we better disambiguate before the subcategories are really developed. --Foroa (talk) 06:20, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
After some checking, I think that a name like "Imperia (city in Italy)" would be better. --Foroa (talk) 06:23, 7 October 2009 (UTC)
Thank you Foroa for your answer. I simply started by the fact that in Commons for Imperia we have only the categories for "Province of Imperia" and then for the city of "Imperia"; all the other categories are under-categories of this two. Beside of these two "trees" we have the "Imperia band", the statue of "Imperia in Konstanz", the "Imperia motorcycles", and the "Imperia vehicles", but they are already more specified. So I think that it's not necessary to specify more the city of Imperia. I think that for cities and municipalities it's better to preserve (if it's possible, of course) only his simple name. Different way, it's happen that if you search the Category:CityXYZ and it's categorised CityXYZ (Italy) the answer is nothing. This is the problem.
