Italy town says no to miniskirts that are too mini
Rome: Just how mini can a miniskirt be?
If an Italian mayor of a small Italian seaside town has his way, law enforcement officials, and not fashion gurus, will be the ones to decide.
The conservative mayor of Castellammare di Stabia, Luigi Bobbio, says he wants to restore public decorum through a set of norms that include banning football games in public parks, blasphemy, and "very skimpy clothes."
The rules are expected to be approved by the city council on Monday.
But what "very skimpy" means is a matter of contention.
The Italian press has interpreted the norms as meaning a ban on miniskirts, low-cut shirts and high heels.
Bobbio told the a news agency that miniskirts and other provocative outfits will still be allowed as long as they are not too revealing.
