Politician says Milanese dress down for fear of being mugged

Lombardy regional councillor says dressing up 'reserved for few'

(ANSA) - Milan, August 29 - People in Milan are dressing less stylishly because they fear being robbed, said Lombardy regional councillor Maria Teresa Baldini on Friday in a written brief.
    Referring to "information circulated by the press" regarding thefts and muggings near the central station in the city that will host Expo 2015, Baldini said, "The lack of security often makes people less willing to look nice, which nowadays is becoming something reserved for the few who can afford a body guard or to hop from a taxi into a hotel or from a hotel into a store".
