Trash bins around Downtown Rome were set ablaze last Tuesday night as protesters took to the streets to express their discontent against the recently-imposed COVID-19 measures.

Local police attempted to mitigate the situation with hydrant sprays after the outburst against evening shutdowns for establishments and closure of theatres, gyms and other entertainment avenues in a display of discontent.
