Here are some more… as they say… better safe than sorry, so the more strange laws you know about, the less chance you’ll get a fine, or worse, arrested.
It is illegal in Lucca to feed the pigeons in the center of the city.
It is illegal for groups of more than two people to hang out in the park after dark in Novara, so if you’re travelling with a group, make sure to get out of the park before dark.
The legal system in Italy works super slow, and it can take years for a case to go to court. On average, no less than ten years pass between indictment and the case going to court. Also something to know, eight out of every ten cases that involve a term in prison just never take place.
If you arrested in Italy, you have a right to remain silent, but you do have to state your name and date of birth as well as your place of birth.
Also, a good thing to know is that by law, you must be able to show some sort of identification at all times. You may show a copy, however, as long as you can produce the original document within twelve hours.
