Milan bans selfie stick

Selfie sticks, glass bottles and food trucks have all been outlawed by authorities in Milan (northern Italy).

Authorities announce new measures to try to tackle anti-social behaviour.

The Town Hall’s ban came into effect on Friday 14 July, and is aimed at curbing littering and anti-social behaviour, reports The Local.

Tourists and locals alike are prohibited from "holding, carrying, leaving on the ground, disposing of, or receiving any kind of glass bottles or containers, cans, and selfie sticks" in the area between Piazza XXIV Maggio, Gorizia Avenue, Via Codara, Cantore Square and Gabriele D'Annunzio Avenue.

Firecrackers and fireworks have also been outlawed.

The rules will be in place until 13 August, with the possibility to extend them if necessary. 

“The purpose of this ordinance is to make it a habit not to bring glass bottles or cans in the area". said Milan's councillor for security, Carmela Rozza.
