Aside from dampening the spirits of merrymaker locals and tourists alike, the ban has also stoked controversy, as it applies to 14 of the city's 15 municipalities with the exception of one -- conveniently, the municipality where the mayor resides, critics decry.

I can see how this can backfire epically.

You can't drink all day... If you don't start in the morning.
 
2017-07-13 09:29:00 PM  
Has a point, drinking has been shown to be DEVAST8'ing.

Impromptu block party in front of the mayor's house, anyone?

"The sale of alcohol is likewise forbidden between the hours of 10 p.m. to 7 a.m."

Dafuq?

Many restaurants in Rome are open well past 10pm.

Most final seatings for dinner are at 10:15pm or 10:30pm!

I'm sorry. I thought this was AMERICA.
 
2017-07-13 09:52:53 PM  
Strangely, I thought it might be about electing a woefully inept and incompetent chief executive.

/Hey, I'm letting anyone who was disappointed in the election of Obama admit to day-drinking too.

That was almost a story.

Scary Headline: Rome bans the sale and public consumption of alcohol after dark

Actual story: From 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. local time, the consumption of alcohol in glass containers is forbidden.

Nothing to see here: At the stroke of midnight, the consumption of any alcohol on public roads and public transit is likewise banned until 7 a.m.

If you're drinking on public roads after midnight, you might want to reexamine some of you life choices.
 
2017-07-13 09:56:48 PM  
I'm fairly certain that Rome already has more than its share of day drinking.

And any true alcoholic always has a stash.  This law only inconveniences tourists.

FTFA: "From 10 p.m. to 7 a.m. local time, the consumption of alcohol in glass containers is forbidden."

Well that leaves aluminum cans and oak barrels.  Whisky, wine and beer drinkers will be fine as long as they buy an "I <3 ROME" plastic mug from the bar for 15 Euro.

In Rome?  If you're NOT having a bit of wine at that hour if you're still awake you should just fly back to Omaha.

Clean living folks are asleep by then, so this shouldn't be a problem for those sorry-ass nun-in-training.

There is no such thing as day drinking. There is only drinking.

Poorly written.  Only for outdoor areas.

Better:
The sale of alcohol is prohibited from 10pm in supermarkets, off-licences and vending machines, and bars must now stop serving indoors after 2am.

I spent a week in Rome when I was stationed in Germany during peek tourist season like 5 years ago.  I didn't notice anything outside the ordinary for major city.  Nothing off-putting at all.  Unless it's gone downhill in those 5 years I don't understand it.

Not a problem, I've already been to Rome, enjoyed myself, took pictures and went home. The best part was American female backpackers pretending to be Swedish.

They also did back in 2015:

http://www.wantedinrome.com/news/alcohol-ban-in-rome-2.html

And from the mag Food & Wine (July 13, 2017)

http://www.foodandwine.com/news/rome-bans-drinking-on-public-streets

"In fact, you shouldn't worry too much about the new laws restricting your vacation: You can still drink in Rome in designated areas, like bars and restaurants, just like everywhere else in world, and drinking outside is still allowed until midnight. Truthfully, it doesn't sound like the law should be difficult to abide. You'll still be able to enjoy Rome with respect, and a glass of wine in your hand, at least until two in the morning. By then, you should be in bed anyway. Why waste your Roman holiday on a hangover?"

Great, send me pics and I can drink at home. I'm sure that will be just as good as visiting.

The last thing you want, Rome, if for my trained drinking monkey to have nothing to do after dark.

It's Italy.  The Romans will just ignore the law if they feel like it anyway ... kind of like traffic laws.

Because it's legal to drink in public places in your neck of the woods? I think only Bourbon Street in New Orleans meets that definition as far as I know.

That's actually very rude to your neighbors.

Drinking on the street, where the property is public and there's noise expected, is far more civilized.

Drinking and partying at night is so 90's.
The older I get, the earlier I retire and therefore I must start drinking at breakfast.
