Because in Italian the adjective usually comes after the noun, see: http://italian.about.com/library/weekly/aa072199b.htm

By the way, there is an Italian section for these kinds of questions :) http://www.duolingo.com/topic/519

The italian, just like other languages (i.e., spanish) is more flexible than english about the structure of the sentences. In italian language, usually the adjective comes after the noun, but it could be otherwise.
