Italy was among the first countries in Europe that introduced restrictions as it was the main place where the pandemic first spread in the continent.
Now after almost two years of strict restrictions, Italy has announced they will begin to remove restrictions. This comes after many other countries in Europe, like Sweden, Denmark, Norway and England have announced removal of restrictions.
The much talked about covid passports in Italy, also called ”green pass”, have sparked massive protests in the country that have lasted since summer. Hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets to protest against strict covid passport requirements, with almost 8 months of constant protests every weekend.
