Souvenir hawkers can also operate on selected days

(ANSA) - Rome, February 1 - Rome Commissioner Francesco Paolo Tronca signed an ordinance Monday partly lifting a ban on commercial activity in public areas around the Vatican introduced on the eve of the Jubilee Holy Year of Mercy in early December. Under the new ordinance travelling souvenir vendors and snack vans operating near St Peter's basilica can resume activities on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays except when these days coincide with Jubilee events. A total of 47 businesses were affected by the original ban, of which 14 for the entire year.
