Ethnic stores are not prohibited in the UNESCO heritage historical city center.
By Stefano Lodola
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.
[The city of] Genoa prohibits the opening of ethnic stores in the UNESCO heritage historical city center, the largest in Europe.
No kebab, call centers, money transfer stores, and businesses deemed indecorous.
This law on ethnic business applies to a red area including the most touristy streets of the city.
In this area, phone centers and sex shops, as well as the use of precooked foods, are also prohibited.
There will be an area of further prestige where businesses will be allowed to open only if their product offer is of [high] quality. The shop windows must have certain characteristics.
The purpose is to gentrify and revitalize the historical city center.
