(ANSA) - ROME, MAY 11 - Stores and supermarkets at around 1,300 shopping malls downed their shutters for a few minutes on Tuesday in protest at the government's COVID-19 restrictions.

    Around 30,000 stores were involved in the protest.
    "We are closing because we want to open," said a joint statement by a series of business associations.
    "Time us up. The restrictions should be revoked.
