milanThe authorities of Milan have banned food trucks, glass bottles and selfie sticks.


This ban has come into effect from 14th July, 2017 onwards. It aims to curb the practice of littering and anti-social behavior, according to the local news media reports.


The Milan government has imposed this ban on its regional inhabitants as well as on the tourists who visit this part of the world. The ban includes the prohibition of ‘holding, carrying, leaving on the ground, disposing of, or receiving any kind of glass bottles or containers, cans and selfie sticks’ in various places.


For instance, tourists and locals are not permitted to do so in the area between Gorizia Avenue, Cantor Square, Gabriele D’ Annunzio Avenue, Piazza XXIV Maggio.


In addition, the Milan authorities have also banned fireworks and firecrackers.


The rules would be applicable till 13th August, 2017. And, they would be extended till a further date if required. Carmela Rozza who is the councilor for security of Milan specified that the latest ban is actually a renewable provision. She added that the ban has been introduced to ensure that people develop a habit of keeping their surroundings clean by not bringing cans or glass bottles here.


Milan is being inspired by a similar practice that is followed in several Italian cities that have taken a firm stance on anti-social behavior from tourists.
