The bannister from the Spanish Steps is an item in the PC version of Mario is Missing!. It is one of the two handrails for the Spanish Steps in Rome, which gets stolen by a group of Koopa Troopas when they invade the city. As Luigi wanders around the city, he comes across a Koopa Troopa holding the Bannister and promptly takes it back. He then questions random people about its origins, and they all realize that it needs to be returned to the Spanish Steps. After gathering enough information, Luigi returns the Bannister to its proper place, and the Spanish Steps reopen.


  • Boy: "I counted 328 steps while holding onto that bannister. Phew! Those Spanish Steps need a Spanish Escalator!"
  • Tourist: "That bannister is one of a pair, without it you could fall down Spanish stairs."
  • Business Woman: "That handrail was taken by some louse. It belongs somewhere nearby Keats' old house."
  • Scientist: "Bannister? Handrail? Whatever you call it, it comes from the Spanish Steps."
  • Police Officer: "It's the bannister to the Spanish Steps. Put it back and we'll grab a pizza on the piazza."
