Southern town plans to ban miniskirts, too much cleavage

In Italy, Silvio Berlusconi became a super-rich media boss, as a springboard for Prime Minister later, by endlessly parading women with “miniskirts, too much cleavage” on his TV networks.

This video from Italy is called Berlusconi’s party of EU candidates.

As Prime Minister, Berlusconi endlessly violates every rule in the sexual rulebook of the conservative wing of the Roman Catholic church, and Berlusconi’s own political Right wing linked to it.

However, when Italian women themselves, on their own initiative, not on Berlusconi’s orders, wear “miniskirts, too much cleavage”, then Berlusconi’s Right wingers want to set the police on them; like fellow Right wingers in Poland, in the USA, Chile, and elsewhere. It reminds one of Berlusconi‘s suddenly prudish censorship of eighteenth century art. Double standards, anyone?

Low jeans, blasphemy also targeted at Castellammare di Stabia

Rome, October 21 2010 – The southern Italian seaside town of Castellammare di Stabia is planning to ban women from wearing miniskirts and outfits showing too much cleavage and make low-rise jeans a no-no for everyone.

The restrictions are part of a list of measures Luigi Bobbio, the centre-right mayor of the town near Naples, will put to the local council for approval on Monday in a bid to ”restore urban decorum and facilitate better civil co-existence”.

Other measures include a ban on blasphemy and on playing football in the town’s public parks, according to leaks of the list published in local newspapers.

Offenders will face fines of between 25 and 500 euros, according to the reports. The local parish priest backs the initiative.

    Police injured in rubbish dispute

    Italy: At least 20 police officers were injured in Terzigno on Thursday night in clashes with protesters.

    The protest was over a plan to open a landfill at the Vesuvio National Park.

    Residents of the town outside Naples, complain that they already have to contend with a rubbish dump in the area.

    Naples and the surrounding area have suffered refuse crises for years, the result of corruption, poor management and infiltration by local gangs.

    Mini Skirt Ban….Yeah right! they tried this once in the USA and it did not work at all. DO you not think that there is another issue out there that could be better served then banning the mini skirt. Seems like Italy can now afford to take care of some of their own debts to the USA for WWII….
