The Mayor of Castellmmare Di Stabia, Italy, Luigi Bobbio, plans to ban mini-skirts, lowrise jeans, and too much cleavage in an effort to "restore public decorum" and rid the town of "rowdy, unruly" behavior. According to the BBC, Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has granted new powers to mayors accross Italy in an effort to fight crime and confront anti-social behavior.
Now while I'll grant that for most women over 40, wearing a mini-skirt is a crime, I have trouble seeing mini-skirts and excess cleavage exposure as anti-social behavior. I've always thought that any woman wearing a mini-skirt and flaunting generous amounts of cleavage was probably a very social being (as in "Come and get it, Baby!").
The "flaunting" fines vary from $42 to $700 in U.S. Dollars, so if you're planning a trip there and mini-skirts are in your wardrobe, be prepared to pay the piper!
