That's not a command. You omitted the /// which signal that the next
line is a continuation. Look again at

scatter two dFrance || scatter one dItaly || ///
scatter two t2, ms(none) mla(dF2) mlabpos(12) || ///
scatter one t1 , ms(none) mla(dI2) mlabpos(12) ///
yla(1 "Italy" 2 "France", ang(h)) xla(, format(%td)) legend(off)
