Abruzzo in the white area, but the mayors’ bans are triggered. In Pescara the mayor, Carlo Masci, has ordered, from tonight, with his own ordinance, that public places, from 7 June to 7 July, close at half past midnight from Sunday to Thursday and at 1.30 on Friday and Saturday. The disputed provision affects the whole city, from the center to the seafront. Masci speaks of “balance and synthesis of common sense” but Confartigianato fiercely criticizes it, stating that it is a “crazy choice” that imposes “a new and absurd curfew”. From the sea to the mountains, there is plenty of controversy. Because even in L’Aquila the mayor, Pierluigi Biondi, lashes out against the botellón. “It is necessary – he says – measures that protect the dignity of our city in addition to the anti Covid containment rules. During the meeting of the public order and safety committee of the province of L’Aquila, this afternoon, I reiterated the need to improve further collaboration between institutions to ensure the right balance between the needs of residents, shopkeepers and the right to leisure of young people. Also through the establishment of joint patrols and implementing territorial protection at the most sensitive times and areas “. Hence an ordinance, with immediate effect, which “will allow law enforcement to intervene in the most critical areas to prevent, starting this weekend, any misconduct by both undisciplined and those who sell or administer alcoholic beverages to minors. I asked the prefect – he continues – to evaluate the possibility of convening a table to address the issue “. The ordinance also provides,” until revocation or modification and subject to any further initiative “, that as of this evening it will be forbidden to consume drinks alcoholic in various streets, squares and, in general, public areas of the historic center of L’Aquila, in particular in those where the so-called “movida” is more active, outside the cases and authorized spaces “.
