Everyone on the street at three in the morning. Even beyond. With the real risk of fights and assaults. The dangers of the post-curfew have already manifested themselves in the first two nights of the week, with protests by residents from Trastevere to San Lorenzo, and once again a super commitment by the police. For this reason the Prefecture has brought together the heads of police, carabinieri, Finance and traffic police to address not only what may happen tonight at the Foro Italico and in the center for the Italy-Switzerland match of the European football at the Olympic stadium, but above all on Friday and Saturday before the Italy-Wales, with almost 4 thousand visiting fans.

Meanwhile, for black smoke for the maxi screens, apart from the institutional ones, in Largo Corrado Ricci, at the Imperial Forums, and in the Euro 2020 Village in Piazza del Popolo. In practice, as emerged from the latest meetings in the Prefecture, to manage the crowd in the squares chosen for the installation of the video systems, reinforcements of the police would be needed, which have instead been hijacked precisely in the Olimpico area and in those of the nightlife, not to mention the significant increase in costs to ensure supervision and anti-crowd systems.

In short, that of maxi screens appears to be an uphill road, even if there will be other technical meetings and news is not excluded in the coming weeks. Meanwhile, we are thinking of tonight, with over 3,600 Swiss fans already arrived in Rome. Commissioner Mario Della Cioppa developed the safety plan on the basis of the decisions taken at Palazzo Valentini: among the novelties there is that of the bellows closures of the traffic around the Olimpico to avoid the traffic jams that paralyzed Northern Rome on the occasion of the debut of the Azzurri against Turkey. Then the terminus of the shuttles for the guests will be moved, not only in Piazza dei Cinquecento, but above all in Piazzale delle Canestre, in Villa Borghese, since most of the fans will gather in Piazza di Spagna where for this reason the vigilance has been raised.

The gates of the stadium will be open at 6 pm, approximately 14 thousand spectators are expected, in compliance with the anti-Covid rules, on vaccines, tampons and patients healed for at least six months. Maximum attention to the movements of the Swiss to the Flaminio and the Lungotevere, as well as Saturday afternoon for two events that will fully engage the police, who will then focus on the nightlife: that of the Lega alla Bocca della Verit (2 thousand people announced) and of the TNT-Fedex freight workers in Piazza della Repubblica and Piazza Vittorio (700 participants).
