The yellow is barely breathed but already for the most impatient – to use a compliment – the traffic light of imprudence and total indifference to any warning and deterrent goes off. So on the Saturday before the easing of anti-covid measures, a sort of ‘go-ahead for everyone’ took off in Rome, despite everything. So a crowd poured into via del Corso, right in the center, so much so that the Police Headquarters were forced to temporarily close the road.
Covid, gatherings in Rome: via del Corso closed. Barriers also in 4 squares of Trastevere
Last night instead a Milano 71 fines were raised for violating the curfew or anti-covid regulations that prohibit the consumption of food and drinks near the place of sale. Another 133 sanctions were carried out for organizing prohibited parties and dinners. In addition, the places of shopping and nightlife were filled with people, from Corso Buenos Aires to the Darsena.

Also in Rome, the police closed a private club in San Basilio for 5 days for violation of the curfew by about fifteen customers. In Trastevere some policemen who were carrying out anti-covid checks were surrounded and insulted by a group of young people, two of whom were reported. Trastevere has also been temporarily closed.
Also to Naples there was no lack of gatherings and the violation of the curfew rule: there were more than 200 people who crowded the portion of Piazza Dante overlooking via Ettore Bellini, after 10 pm, complete with alcohol and music but strictly without a mask: 25 i reported.

Crowd in the street also a Torino, especially in the streets of the center. While outside restaurants and pizzerias they worked to set up the dehors in view of the reopening on Monday, in front of the shops there were long lines under the arcades of Via Roma, especially in the shops of the large low-cost clothing chains.
Heavy traffic, with cars lined up looking for a parking space. City parks are also full.
