One of the world’s most popular cities, Rome, is a prime example of the decimating effect of restrictions on tourism. According to recent figures, 350 of Rome’s 1,300 or so hotels are currently closed, with a further 50 planned to close in the coming days. This is because current occupancy figures have fallen to April 2020. The situation is exacerbated by the mandatory presentation of an immunity certificate to enter hotels, which is aimed at increasing vaccination uptake. However, stakeholders claim that no action is being taken to support the affected hotels in Rome and that more than 7,000 people are at risk of losing their jobs in the next three months. Several hotels have already laid-off workers. The trade unions have therefore called for urgent measures to support the tourist supply chain, an urgent ban on redundancies, and the creation of a social safety net to avoid the risk of companies passing on the costs of the pandemic crisis to workers.
