An Italian mayor wants to ban mini-skirts in public, branding them "too revealing".
Luigi Bobbio said he wanted to restore public decorum in Castellammare di Stabia, near Naples, through a set of rules that include banning football games in public parks, blasphemy, and "very succinct clothes."
The rules are expected to be approved by the city council.
But what "very succinct" 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.
