Unequal treatment between those in Italy and those arriving from abroad, including tourists: it is one of the thorniest issues that will have to be addressed by the government when deciding whether to confirm the free transfer between the Regions starting from June 3. In fact, the decree in force does not impose no surveillance measures for those arriving from Schengen countries and above all it does not provide for any movement limitation. This is why some governors – Lombardy in the lead – contest the hypothesis of being able to have a delayed opening of one or two weeks.
The decision will be taken on Saturday during the State-Regions conference which will meet after the “control room”. According to the provision signed by the Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte from 3 June 2020, “travel to and from abroad can only be limited with measures adopted pursuant to article 2 of decree-law no. 19 of 2020, also in relation to specific States and territories, according to principles of adequacy and proportionality to the epidemiological risk and in compliance with the constraints deriving from the European Union regulations and international obligations “.
Faced with this arrangement it looks strange that the executive can limit internal travel only for Italians. Also because the choice to prevent entry from abroad appears unthinkable, especially after the commitments made by the owner of the Farnesina Luigi Di Maio with other governments and Italy’s insistence on guaranteeing free movement.
