Italy's business owners hold protests against Covid-19 restrictions

Restaurant owners, entrepreneurs and small businesses owners held a demonstration outside parliament on Piazza Montecitorio in Rome, to protest against closures and against Italy's Health minister, during the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. Owners of restaurants, bars, pubs and pizzerias said they will open the doors of their premises from April 7 despite restrictions, as ‘a matter of survival’.
