ITALY. After France with its curfew from 9 p.m. and Spain in confinement, Italy also decided to step up its measures against Covid-19. On Sunday 25 October 2020, Giuseppe Conte put in place new restrictions with, in particular, the closure of cinemas, gyms, swimming pools and theatres until 24 November 2020. They had been announced on 18 October 2020.

The Italian Prime Minister has also restricted the opening hours of bars and restaurants, which will no longer be open after 6pm. 75% of teaching hours in high schools and universities will be held after 6pm.
