    Default Italian town to ban the miniskirt

    This article from the BBC really grabbed my attention. There seems to be a growing trend in Europe of new laws being passed that can only be called restrictive of personal freedoms.

    I know it's hardly comparable to, say, Saudi Arabia, but this gradual, incremental emergence of such laws and ideas is beginning to worry me. I wonder what Europe will be like in twenty years time.

    FROM THE BBC.

    The dress code would ban everything from miniskirts to low-cut jeans 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).

    'Right decision'

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

    That means a tough new dress code which would effectively outlaw everything from miniskirts to low-cut jeans when people walk around Castellammare di Stabia, our correspondent adds.

    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.
    A man could lose himself in a country like this.

    Wait. Isn't it usually boobies galore at the public beaches in Italy? Or am I a wishful sucker for always thinking that? Maybe I'm thinking of other European beaches.
