Just how mini can a miniskirt be? If the mayor of a small Italian town has his way, law enforcement officials, and not fashion gurus, will be the ones to decide.

The mayor of the southern seaside town of Castellammare di Stabia wants to ban football in parks and squares, blasphemy, and "very skimpy clothes".

The rules were expected to be approved by the city council yesterday. Mayor Luigi Bobbio said that miniskirts will still be allowed as long as they are not too revealing. "It's a matter of common sense," he said.
