Rome mayor Virginia Raggi is working on a proposal to prevent "barbarian tourists" from returning to the capital, according to Italian news agency ANSA.
Raggi is reportedly seeking the help of Rome's embassies in compiling a list of tourists "guilty of crimes against the city" before issuing the offenders with a so-called daspo or ban from returning to the city.
The duration of the ban is also up for discussion. To make the idea a reality, Raggi will seek a meeting with Italy's interior minister Matteo Salvini, ANSA reports.
The mayor brought forward the proposal following the latest incident of tourists behaving badly, this time at the 17th-century Barcaccia fountain in Piazza di Spagna.
