In a bid to get rid of the huge number of noise complaints, the city of Milan wants to ban the selling of late-night snacks like ice cream and pizza.

The city’s local government has filed a legislative starting paper citing its effort to protect the “peace and health” of its residents.

If passed, the new law will come into effect in May and will set to last until November. This will include the ban of all takeaway food and drinks after 12:30 am on weekdays and 1:30 am on weekends and public holidays.

Complaints from local residents about groups of people keeping them up at night have increased rapidly over the last few years. Local authorities believe the vendors selling late-night snacks like ice cream and pizza are to blame as they encourage people to be out on the street late at night.

While late-night snacking is part of the Italian culture, Milan’s mayor Giuseppe Sala said that “a sizeable segment of the population is complaining about excessive noise.”

“In my role, I have to listen to all citizens, including those who have to work and those who want to do their business.”

Citizens have until May to appeal.
