Italy’s new laws reminiscent of Seinfeld’s “Good Samaritan” law

As soon as I read this article, I immediately thought of the Seinfeld finale.

Remember when the whole cast happened to be in some middle-of-nowhere town, and witnessed an overweight man getting mugged? And they got arrested for it?

Well apparently, the good council members of local towns in Italy have decided to take it upon themselves to crack down on anti-social behavior.  What kinds of behavior?  My favorites include:

The coastal town of Eraclea, near Venice, prohibits the building of sandcastles on the beaches because they can “obstruct the passage” of people strolling along the strand.


On the island of Capri, wearing noisy wooden clogs is banned.

There are over 150 such laws in Italy.  You may want to familiarize yourself with the list before visiting.
