Culture Cops (27): In Italy

Trev stops a woman who is eating in public at a location of historical significance in Rome, Italy. It is illegal to eat at some historical or artistic areas as to not ruin them with crumbs or litter.

Trev: Excuse me, ma'am. I'm going to have to ask you to eat the gelato within the designated cones. Right now, you're a little too close to the Colosseum.

W: I'm sorry, officer; I'm just about finished so I'll throw it away once I'm done.

Trev: I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to ask you to throw it away now, or move into the cones. Roman law now states that you can't eat anything within a certain distance of historical landmarks as crumbs or droppings could ruin the historical integrity.

W: I understand. I'll go over to the cones. Even though there are a lot of other people out here eating as well.

Trev: You're right, and I'm going to go talk to them right now.

W: Fair is fair.

Trev: Next time you want to eat near a historical landmark, instead of gelato, think gelaNO. Ha ha.
