 It is unknown how many did open, but videos show customers drinking, eating and singing. In one viral video, customers apparently booted the police back out the door. Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte extended the country's three-tier coronavirus restrictions, imposing a nationwide 10pm curfew until March and forbade travel between Italy's 20 regions through February 20. These measures were originally implemented in November, and were set to expire last week.

Though much of Italy remains under strict coronavirus restrictions, restaurants and bars have opened their doors in protest. Customers drank, ate, sang, and in one viral video, apparently booted the police back out the door.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte extended the country's three-tier coronavirus restrictions on Friday, imposing a nationwide 10pm to 5am curfew until March and forbidding travel between Italy's 20 regions until February 15. These measures were originally implemented in November, and were set to expire on Friday.

For regions classified as 'Orange' or 'Red' based on the number of recorded cases there, bars and restaurants are limited to providing take-away only.
