Genova vieta il kebab in centro storico

Genova vieta l’apertura di negozi etnici nel centro storico patrimonio Unesco, il più grande d’Europa.

Stop a kebab, call center, money transfer e attività considerate non decorose.

La legge sul commercio etnico si applica in una zona rossa che comprende le vie più turistiche della città.

Nella zona saranno vietati anche phone center e sexy shop, così come l’uso di alimenti precotti.

Ci sarà una zona di ulteriore pregio dove le attività potranno essere aperte solo se l’offerta commerciale sarà di qualità. Le vetrine dovranno avere certe caratteristiche.

Lo scopo è qualificare e rivitalizzare il centro storico.
