I have come to understand that “parking spot” is a very flexible concept in Italy. As far as I can tell- if there is space for your car, then that makes it a parking space.

Close enough. Why waste all that time backing up and straightening out?
Trees at intersections double as parking spots.
Side walk: Please walk around the side of my car. Thanks.
