Ban on Immodest Tourists

Ban on Immodest Tourists

"Foreign tourists in immodest clothing will not be tolerated on Rome streets, police headquarters announced today. A circular has been sent to all police stations in and around Rome laying down that tourists seen in city streets in improper dress—such as brief shorts, flimsy, sleeves less blouses and, on the part of males, bare torsos . . . may be charged with indecent behaviour in a public place."

—"Evening Post." 22/8/57.

And women? and Romans?
