City authorities have decided that bars and restaurants must not put out street furniture in 29 historic squares in Rome. Among the areas where it is forbidden to take over any public space are Piazza di Spagna, Piazza di Trevi and Piazza della Minerva as well as Piazzale Garibaldi on the Gianicolo. In a further 25 squares including Piazza Barberini, Piazza Farnese, Piazza Venezia, Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona authorities have dictated a maximum percentage of public space that may be occupied (from between 0.4 per cent to 16.5 per cent). Dividing barriers and heaters are not allowed, and the size and placement of tables have been fixed following discussions between residents, business owners and municipal authorities. The new law will come into effect gradually as old permits expire. Campo deFiori and Piazza della Maddalena are currently not among the affected squares, but authorities said they will be included soon. For a list of all the squares, see www.comune.roma.it.
