The abolition of the curfew is approaching: the ban on night travel will soon be canceled throughout Italy in view of the summer, with an early elimination in the Regions that enter the white zone. So from Monday 7 June the curfew will be in effect starting from midnight (and no longer from 11 pm) in yellow zone, while it is already abolished in white area. To date, there are seven regions in the white zone: Abruzzo, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Liguria, Molise, Sardinia, Umbria and Veneto. In these territories the curfew no longer exists. It remains, however, in the yellow zone, or in all the other regions of Italy, even if from 14 June many of these territories could overcome the ban on night travel with the passage – very likely for six regions – in the white zone. In each case, the ban on night travel will be canceled throughout the country from 21 June at the latest.
What changes for the curfew from 7 June
The first stop for many territories is that of 7 June: in the yellow zone the curfew is moved all 24, compared to the limit established up to that moment which triggered the ban on moving at 11 pm. The curfew remains in force until 5 am, as it also happened previously. The situation is different for the white zone: in these territories the curfew is abolished and the novelty is that since 7 June four Regions have entered the band with fewer restrictions: Abruzzo, Liguria, Umbria and Veneto. During the curfew, travel is still permitted for reasons of work, health and necessity.
When they will lift the curfew: the date on which it will be abolished
The abolition of the curfew it is the last stage in a series of gradual transformations desired by the government and by the Prime Minister, Mario Draghi. First, from 19 May, the ban on night travel was moved to 11 pm (until then it was activated at 10 pm), then it came to midnight from 7 June. The next step, again for the yellow zone, is the abolition, scheduled after two weeks, ie starting from 21 June. In the white area, however, the curfew is eliminated automatically. It remains in force in the orange and red zones, even if it must be said that at the moment no Italian territory is in these risk ranges nor does it seem to risk returning soon.
Curfew already abolished in the White Zone Regions
Following the agreement reached between the Government and the Regions, it was decided to proceed not only with the early reopening, but also with the early abolition of the curfew in the white areas. Thus, as early as May 31, the ban on night travel was canceled in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Molise and Sardinia. From 7 June, then, the abolition of the curfew also came for Abruzzo, Liguria, Umbria and Veneto. The next stop is set for June 14, when Emilia-Romagna, Lazio, Lombardy, Piedmont, Puglia and the Autonomous Province of Trento should enter the white zone (and therefore cancel the ban on night travel). All the other Regions will not enter the white zone before 21 June, the day on which the curfew will be abolished for everyone, even for the Aosta Valley which, however, should not enter the less restrictive zone before 28 June.
