2). ROMA ARCHEOLOGICA & RESTAURO ARCHITETTURA: ITALY – Come to Rome for the cathedrals, the ruins . . . and the red-light district? THE WASHINGTON POST, U.S.A, (09 March 2015).
“…[Mayor Ignazio Marino & his new red-light district?] …In editorials and pronouncements, Catholic Church officials have strongly denounced Roman officials, saying the city, and Italy more generally, should instead move to ban prostitution — or at least adopt the legal path pioneered by Sweden that targets johns, not prostitutes, by criminalizing the buying, but not the selling, of sex.
The Rev. Aldo Buonaiuto, representative of a Catholic aid group that works with prostitutes, called the plan tantamount to legitimizing the exploitation of women. “Basically, what they want to do is have the state become the pimp,” he quipped.
Yet Rome’s mayor, Ignazio Marino, said opponents simply do not grasp the scope of the problem.
