The mayor of Florence, ItalyÂ is giving the Jersey Shore cast a stict code of conduct when it comes to shooting in his city…no acting a fool! Come on Mayor where is the fun. The Jersey Shore kids will find a way aroundÂ theÂ rules, its what they do!
According to the NY Post,
The mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi, has made a list of rules that Snooki & Co. will have to follow while they are â€œon the other sideâ€ of the Atlantic:
The rules, listed in the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera, are:
— The cast will not be filmed in bars and clubs that serve alcohol.
— The cast will not be filmed drinking in public.
— The show will not be filmed to promote Florence as a drinking town.
— The show should be filmed in a manner to promote Italy (not Americans visiting Italy) and feature itâ€™s culture and good food.
In addition to these strict guidelines, Renzi has banned the show from filming in the cityâ€™s historic buildings, but admitted that he â€œcould not ban them from using the city (Florence) as a set.â€
Renziâ€™s guidelines are only the latest hurdle that MTV and the cast has had to overcome with regards to the â€œJersey Shoreâ€ heading to the motherland.
Many Italians are not to happy with teh show and the stereotypes that the cast embodies…lol!!
“They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized,” columnist Roberto Del Bove lamented in the Rome newspaper New Notzie last month.
Serioulsy with all these rules how is the cast going to have fun…stay inÂ their rentalÂ house and drink…well I guess they will have to!
