意大利小城禁穿迷你裙 违者罚款

Castellammare di Stabia, near Naples, intends to prohibit women from wearing provocative clothing.

Women who wear miniskirts or show too much cleavage will face fines of up to 500 euros (£440) under new rules to be introduced by an Italian town.

In a move sharply at odds with a country which produced the likes of Monica Bellucci and Sophia Loren, the town of Castellammare di Stabia, near Naples, intends to prohibit women from wearing provocative clothing.

The town's 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 centre-Right mayor, Luigi Bobbio, said it was all part of an effort to "restore urban decorum and improve coexistence" by targeting people who were "rowdy, unruly or simply badly behaved".

Playing football in parks and gardens and swearing in public will also be banned under new regulations which will be put forward for approval at a council meeting on Monday.

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

A local parish priest, Don Paolo Cecere, said he supported the crackdown.

"It's the right decision. In this way we can fight the spread of sexual molestation," he told a local newspaper, the Cronache di Napoli.

Italy has become entangled in a web of petty rules and regulations in the last two years, after the government of Silvio Berlusconi gave councils extra powers to tailor laws to tackle crime and anti-social behavior.

Across the nation, towns have banned a range of seemingly innocuous activities such as building sandcastles on the beach, kissing in cars and feeding stray cats.
