Milan’s Heated Gelato Debate
Ban as council juggles fun-seeking and public order

MILAN – A hypothetical conversation in Milan between an ice cream-eating citizen and a public official might go like this. “Is it OK to slurp?” “You can slurp provided you do so inside the ice cream shop”. The astounded gelato fan protests: “But I like an ice cream while I’m out in the street in the evening”. The stern public official replies: “Sorry. If you’re in a nightlife zone after midnight, it’s against the law”.

Looks like common sense (and a large flashmob protest) has won the day though, for a change. bounce

Well, at least there aren't any dead bodies on the Milan streets, unlike in Glasgow when ice cream wars erupt Shocked

Ah the good 'ole days when going to the wrong Ice-cream van for a 99 put a whole new meaning to the expression;
 'stop me and buy one'.......

Like Italian citizen i can say that bureaucracy (italian and abov-all UE) it's our enemy; sadly it's a power used to keep down the Italian citizen and keep a lot of income for the "casta", all the "casta" (in english is it caste ?).
I think that many Italian's region, whitout bureacracy, could fly high.
