Women who wear skirts that are too short or who show too much cleavage face fines of up to €500 under new rules to be introduced by an Italian town writes Nick Squires.
Castellammare di Stabia, near Naples, intends to prohibit women from wearing provocative clothing and wants to ban men and women from wearing low-slung jeans as part of a list of 41 new rules that "every good citizen must respect".
Mayor, Luigi Bobbio, said it was all part of an effort to "restore urban decorum and improve co-existence". (© Daily Telegraph, London)
