Italian seaside town planning miniskirt ban

This is just so wrong, if I was an italian I would go there to protest against the inhumanity of this decision.  

41oiqj8J8wL._AA280_A seaside city in Italy is planning to ban miniskirts and other revealing clothing to improve what the mayor calls standards of public decency.

Castellammare di Stabia is trying to be the latest location in Italy to make use of new powers to crack down on what is deemed to be anti-social behaviour.

Mayor Luigi Bobbio said the regulations would help "restore urban decorum and facilitate better civil co-existence".

Offenders would face fines of between 25 ($35) and 500 euros ($696).

"Nothing too revealing" is the new policy Mayor Bobbio wants to enforce, says the BBC’s Duncan Kennedy in Rome.

Mr Bobbio, from the centre-right People of Freedom party, says he wants to target people who are "rowdy, unruly or simply badly behaved".

There will also be a ban on sunbathing, playing football in public places, and blasphemy, if the proposals are approved at a council meeting on Monday.

"I think it’s the right decision," a local parish priest, Don Paulo Cecere, told the Cronache di Napoli newspaper. "It’s also a way of combating the rise in sexual harassment."

Castellammare di Stabia is latest city to make use of the extra powers handed down by Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s government to mayors, in the effort to fight crime and confront anti social behaviour.

In other places they have banned sandcastles, kissing in cars, feeding stray cats, wooden clogs and the use of lawn mowers at weekends.

  1. I always thought Italians kinda ‘invented’ the concept of the mini-skirt.

    I swear people protest over the stupidest shit…

  2. Okay, I admit that the image you pointed to is a bit over the top, but seriously? Other that The Vatican (which ain’t looking so good these days), sports cars (that ain’t selling so well), and some old ruins, sexiness is the thing Italians depend on to bring in the tourists. I think this move is like shooting them selves in the foot! 😀

    • it is so stupid of them its unbelievable, I mean they got a prime minister who shags everything with two legs (and four) and they wanna ban miniskirts… it blew my head away when I read it and so did my two Italian colleges who couldn’t stop laughing about this…

  3. When I was in Junior High, the teachers would make us kneel on the floor – and if the hem of our skirts didn’t touch the floor, they were supposed to send us home. I guess the rules were unfairly applied, because my skirt never touched the floor, yet I was never sent home (at least not for that) 😉
