The Pincio hill will be closed to private vehicles between 21.00 and 03.00 from 16 June until further notice. Traffic will instead be diverted along Via Sebastianello. The initiative is part of a scheme to make Rome safer for evening strollers during the summer months. In addition, police presence will be heightened in city centre hotspots such as Piazza Navona, Fontana di Trevi, Piazza di Spagna, Via del Corso and Trastevere. Police will control the areas around the clock, with the dual aim of preventing vehicles from parking illegally and controlling wandering sellers. City authorities are attempting to crack down on illegal sellers in the city and confiscated 51,000 products in the first two weeks of May.
