In order to fight any further diffusion of Covid-19, people are advised to be very cautious when meeting others. A distance of a meter or so must be kept - and a face mask (better if surgical) worn when being indoor - in case of any personal encounters.
.:. Though Milan and Lombardy are still at risk, some behaviours are allowed. Not only shops are at work, and bars and restaurants may serve, but also museums, theaters and cinemas operate again. Starting from Friday, August 6, however, entrance to many indoor venues is allowed only to people who can provide one of the COVID-19 green certifications, in paper or digital format, issued in order to certify they got an anti-SARS-CoV-2 vaccination, healed from COVID-19, or passed a fast or molecular antigen test with negative result for the SARS-CoV-2 virus performed within the last 48 hours. Curfew suspended.

Street performing
.:. Street performing in Milan without amplification 2/21/2012

I am planning a street performing/busking trip next summer during which I will be coming to Milan in June, for two days.

Can I do street performing with my acoustic guitar on the streets of Milan, if I don't use any amplification, no microphones etc?

Do I need to get a permit for this, and if I need a permit, where can I get one in advance?

Thanks for writing to CiaoMilano, and sorry for replying so late. It took us a while to find the correct answer.

Which is yes - you have to ask for a specific permission.

You can do by addressing the relevant staff at (they read this message in carbon copy).

Hope this helps.
