A police chief and a police officer were also injured in the incident after trying unsuccessfully to prevent the man from setting himself alight.
He was angry about the negative impact on his business of long-running work to build a tunnel in Via Lombardia and the planned erection of sound barriers which he said would prevent client access to his restaurant. The man and one of the police officers received extensive burns but their condition was said to be stable.
