Rome is a war for outdoor tables, bars and restaurants ready to resort to the Tar


In Rome, the operators of bars and restaurants are on a war footing, a reason for disputing the denials that are coming to put the tables outside the premises, in order to recover the heavy losses suffered due to the closures and restrictions for the covid. From Prati al Pigneto there is a rain of waste from the offices of the Mobility and Traffic Department of the Municipality of Rome. And therefore traders are ready to appeal. “We are evaluating to present appeals to the TAR, also to the Council of State and, if necessary, to promote a class action to win the battle for the tables outside”, Claudio Pica, president of Fiepet Rome and Lazio, announces to the Adnkronos. “Several denials are coming from the Mobility Office that reject hundreds of requests in various central and peripheral areas due to the fact that many streets are considered to be of great traffic ‘in the list of the Highway Code, therefore, the officials place a mobility and road safety problem referring to the national standard – explains Pica – and this despite the resolution of the Capitoline assembly in May authorized the placement of tables also with platforms and umbrellas in tariff zones (blue stripes), notwithstanding various constraints “. “There will be 600-700 people who have been denied to put the tables outside, there are many cases that come to us from the associates”, adds Pica. On the same wavelength is the Fipe. The refusal to occupy public land on high-traffic roads “is a serious problem in Rome because it prevents the exhibitors of public establishments, bars and restaurants from setting up outdoor spaces”, said Sergio Paolantoni, president of Fipe Roma, also interviewed by ‘Adnkronos. “We have stressed to the Department of Mobility that some roads that are considered to be primary roads were, but in fact they are no longer. We ask that some regulations on the codification of roads should be revised on the basis of current reality”. “We are moving with the lawyers. We do not exclude the possibility of appealing to ask for a revision of the interpretation of the Highway Code – adds Paolantoni – we have also proposed to create temporary pedestrian areas but on the one hand there is the Department of Commerce and the mayor Raggi who gave the opportunity and on the other the Department of Mobility who instead denied the permits because too many dehors along the road deny the possibility of parking and make transit difficult. We are between two fires “. invested thousands of euros to set up platforms, umbrellas and railings, up to 10 thousand euros per venue, they feel “mocked”, underlines the representative Fiepet. The restaurateurs and bartenders have spent from 3,000 to 10 thousand euros for umbrellas, the railings alone cost from 200-400 euros per linear meter, so for a 15-meter fence you spend over 4,000 euros.
