The status box for the landing page and banners in
) shows that this year's translations have not yet been published. (they
are marked either proofreading or update translation). I think that the
banners and landing page you are seeing on the Italian wikipedia must be
last year's translations. So personally (as a fellow translator - not
an admin) I would recommend you to finish the proofreading and
translation of this year's messages by clicking on the 'proofreading'
and 'update translation' links. When finished you should change the
status to ready and request publishing of the messages. When this year's
messages are published the messages you see currently should disappear,
except if you are in Switzerland, France or Germany.
As far as I can see, the fundraiser translations for this year in most
languages have not yet been published. So the same problem has been
reported also from Japan.
Those templates don't seem up to date or relevant, as it was pointed out
I am surprised that you can disable the fundraising banners in Italian -
can you explain how you can do this and we cannot do this on our wiki.
You can't. Meta-Wiki administrators are technically able to but they can
only for obvious emergencies.
