With the increase in infections from Covid, especially among young people and children, Italy is preparing a Armored New Year, without public holidays and with concert halls and discos closed. In many cases at the local level the mayors had already thought about canceling the events scheduled for New Year’s Eve, but with the new decree the government bans them throughout the country and closes the dance clubs again.
A squeeze that re-proposes the question of the compensation for economic activities most penalized by two years of pandemic. “We ask for an urgent meeting with the government to bring a series of requests to its attention, ranging from immediate refreshments (which did not happen in the past) to certain times of reopening to the rescheduling of taxes that have strangled our businesses”, he protests Gianni Indino, president of Silb, the union of dance clubs in Emilia-Romagna, which asks for “respect for our workers, our families, our businesses “because so many” are on the verge of bankruptcy “.
Also the president of the Emilia Romagna Region, Stefano Bonaccini, he expressed perplexity on closing nightclubs. He fears “the proliferation, as it was this summer, of uncontrollable private parties. It is the only point on which I had suggested using the Super Green pass and maybe even tampons. “A possibility that appeared on December 23, when the Council of Ministries was held, but was then set aside.
The Italian provision not granted in the company house in welcoming the new, entrusts to the common sense and to caution the risk of minimizing the risk of domestic outbreaks. Despite the record of infections, which in the last few days were triple compared to 12 months ago, Italy lives these end-of-year holidays with more freedom and possibility to find relatives and friends. In 2020 the whole country was in the red zone and there was a curfew. There will be no parties in the clubs or in the square, but those who have had the vaccine or have recovered from Covid in the last six months and have the Super Green pass will be able to go for dinner at the restaurant. They allow themselves guests in the house. There was no limitation on the number of guests. Some first citizens, however, have already moved for days with authorizations. A Bologna, to avoid spontaneous celebrations and gatherings, the mayor Matteo Lepore has forbidden access from the evening of 31 to the morning of January 1 to Piazza Maggiore.
A San Marino, according to the provisions of decree 208, remain suspended the activities of “disco, dance halls, night clubs and the like”. The dance and the entertainment activities that involve gathering to remain prohibited also in bars, restaurants, hotels and accommodation facilities in general. suspended also all parties and events, both indoors and outdoors, which include dancing. In bars and restaurants the limit of 4 people in tables spaced at least one meter apart. Number which can be waived in the case of subjects belonging to the same group of cohabitants.
