According to Sky News, a legislative starting paper has been filed by the city's local government. 

This is an attempt by the city to reduce noise and crowding on the streets that disturb other residents. 

Marco Granelli, deputy mayor, reportedly said: "The goal is to seek a balance between socialising and entertainment, and the peace and tranquillity of residents."

The publication states that the 'proposal would ban all takeaway food, including pizza, and drink', and if it passes, it would be effective from mid-May and last until November.
