Eight stalls at Rome's most famous open market in Piazza Campo de' Fiori have been closed down in a move to return the square to a more traditional look. The city council has decided the vendors of "varied goods" ranging from jewellery to shoes, who are all from Bangladesh, should not be allowed to operate in a market that was once dedicated to fruit and vegetables. The ruling, which has been strongly contested since its proposal in May, restricts the market to 36 stalls selling food, three florists and eight stands (rather than the current 16) offering other goods. While the quotas for flower sellers and other good have always been filled, there are now only about a dozen stalls selling food in the market. The evicted stall-holders will be allowed to convert their licenses to enable them to sell fruit and vegetables, but the Bangladeshi traders are not optimistic about raising capital to do so.
