Legal challenge

The Italian naturist magazine Vita Naturista has launched a petition to ask the Italian Parliament to legally recognise naturism in the country.

“In Italy it is still possible to be charged with offenses against public decency just for stripping off on the beach for sunbathing,” the magazine explains. “This denies people the opportunity to exercise the basic civil right to nudity on beaches.”

The petition aims to overthrow the anachronistic Article 726 of the Criminal Code, thus bringing Italian legislation on basic human values into line with other European countries. It also hopes the move will stimulate naturist tourism in Italy.

Under the current legislation, any offence deemed to be against public decency is punishable by imprisonment for a period from one month up to three years, or a fine ranging from €10 to €206.
