According to Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, Italy needs to tighten its legislation on illegal parties.
Italy’s new right-wing government signaled on Monday that it wants to define the organization of unauthorized machine music raves as a crime.
According to the government’s proposal, organizing a party could result in a prison sentence of up to six years.
The government announced the matter after a Halloween party for more than a thousand people was organized near the northern Italian city of Modena over the weekend. Raves held in an unused warehouse drew complaints about noise and traffic problems.
The prime minister who emphasized law and order in his speeches by Giorgia Meloni according to Italy must tighten its legislation on illegal parties.
– The state does not ignore such a violation of the law, Meloni said at the press conference.
The legislation on raves had already started to be reformed during the previous government, after two people died in the raves organized in the Italian city of Viterbo last year, says BBC (switch to another service).
The new government is making the legislation stricter than its predecessor. Melon’s government proposes prison sentences of between three and six years for the organizers of the raves. In addition, the organizers are threatened with fines and confiscation of sound systems.
Opponents of the new law have criticized the government for not being a responsive dictator Benito Mussolini to a fascist march organized by supporters over the weekend, which was attended by 2,000 people.
The rave party organized in Modena ended peacefully on Monday, when the police and the revelers decided by consensus to end the party.
