The limits to the opening hours for hairdressers, barbers, beauticians, artisan workshops (ice cream parlors, pizza restaurants, rotisseries) expire as established by the new ordinance in force until 30 June, signed yesterday by the mayor. Free the activities that record customer peaks at specific times of the day – explained Virginia Raggi – and which would therefore be penalized by too rigid constraints. The greater elasticity granted to some categories, in the face of constant change that requires more time, it was favored by the positive balance of containment measures and by encouraging data on the course of the epidemic. Both for take-away food and personal services, the closure will no longer be at 9.30 pm, but may be postponed. For the same criterion, other commercial types (hardware, building materials, thermo-hydraulic products, DIY and paints), car repair shops and car dealerships with a repair and assistance laboratory will be able to move on more flexible shifts. Possibility of self-regulation also for newsagents, tobacconists, pharmacies, parapharmacies and trade on public area.
As regards, however, the shops still subject to regulation, three time slots are provided from Monday to Saturday. There are two options for neighborhood shops in the food sector, supermarkets and bakers: opening between 7 and 8 and closing by 15 or opening between 7 and 8 and closing not before 19. Non-food laboratories will be able to raise the damper between 9.30 and 10 to lower it by 19. Neighborhood activities and medium and large sales structures in the non-food sector, including phone centers and internet points, will have an opening margin between 10 and 11 and non stop before 7pm. Stationers, stationers and bookstores will have the option of deciding whether to adapt to the parameters of the second or third range. Freedom of choice is also left to mixed exercises, food and non-food, depending on the titles held.
In the meantime, yesterday morning the Commerce Committee returned to discuss the proposed amendments to the joint resolution on the simplified procedure and the derogations for the expansion of the occupation of public land. All political forces agree that the 35 per cent ceiling should be reviewed, although not equally. The president, the five-star Andrea Coia, believes that the threshold is too restrictive: We expect an area of 50 percent in the UNESCO area and 80 percent in the rest of the city – suggests the councilor pentastellato -. For minimum criteria we consider the Highway Code and respect for the distance of five meters from the monuments. The concession will have a temporary duration of 18 months. The Democratic Party stopped for six months, except for opening the hypothesis of extending the measures for another six, after checking the overall health situation. With regard to the extra quota for the dehors, the group leader dem Gulio Pelonzi advocates less extensive proportions: 40 per cent in the center, 60 per cent for the rest of the territory. The president of the Mobilit commission, Enrico Stefno, also spoke in videoconferencing, involved in the question of the tables set up on the blue stripes: My idea was to ensure that in the proposals for the expansion of public land occupations there are also those of a temporary pedestrianization ( for example in via dei Castani in Centocelle, ed) which could be occasions of greater enjoyment for citizens. A pedestrian island project under construction also in via Flavio Stilicone (Appio), in the VII Municipio.
