Italian town ban mini-skirts

Women planning to visit this small Italian town had better not pack any mini-skirts or low cut tops.

Authorities in Castellammare di Stabia near Naples, have decided to fine women who wear skirts that too short or show too much cleavage up to 600 euros about S$700, the UK's Daily Telegraph reported.

The move against provocative clothing has raise eyebrows in a country which has produced sex symbols like Monica Bellucci and Sophia Loren.

The town council also wants to ban men and women from wearing low-slung jeans as part of a list of 41 new rules that "every good citizen must respect", the report said.

Mayor Lulgi Bobbio said it was all part of an effort to "restore urban decorum and improve coexistence."  The aim was to target people who were "rowdy, unruly or simply badly behaved".

Playing football in parks and gardens and swearing in public will also be banned under the new regulations.

If the new regulations are approved, offenders will face fines of between 25 and 500 euros.

The report said that Italy has become entangled in a web of petty rules and regulations in the last tow years after the government of prime minister Silvio Berlusconi gave councils extra powers to tailor laws to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.

So be careful if you happen or going the above mentioned town near Naples in Italy.
