Dear All,
unfortunately, the evolution of the coronavirus situation in Italy forced the Italian Government to issue new restrictive measures affecting our everyday life. Here following you will find the new measures, effective until April 3rd, 2020.
Travel throughout Italy is forbidden. You can only move for emergencies or "proven" work needs, but they will have to be authorized by the Prefect. Also, those who have been quarantined cannot move from their homes for any reason.
The educational activity for schools of every order and grade, universities and academies is suspended until April 3rd.
All organized events, as well as events in a public or private place, including cultural, playful, sporting and religious events, indoors and or outdoors, are suspended. Museums, cinemas, theatres, pubs, dance schools, arcades, betting rooms and bingo halls, clubs are closed.
Catering services and bars are allowed to stay open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m., provided that the operator can comply with the "obligation" to ensure the distance of interpersonal safety in the premises. Other non-catering businesses (i.e. shops) can stay open as long as they can guarantee the distance of 1 metre between customers.
Shopping malls will have to be closed on weekends, while supermarkets are open without limitations.
We are sure that these measures are necessary for the safety of all residents in Italy, and that they will be cancelled when there is evidence that the contagion has stopped.
