Who left these droppings?

Hi, while out watering yesterday I found this, about 60 cm off the ground on a half-eaten eggplant leaf. I've seen mouse droppings before, but these are longer and more blunt at the ends. Anyone know what could have left these? I live in northern Italy.

    I don't know, but I'd say small omnivorous mammal. They are too large to be insect scat.

    My guess would be grasshopper. I've seen pretty big droppings from them & wondered if they were mouse, but it didn't add up. I don't remember if we had grasshoppers in a Jat or anything, but somehow I came to that conclusion.
