article imageItalian woman says topless sunbather was 'troubling' her sons

Anzio - Although topless sunbathing is legal at Italian beaches, one mother contacted police because she felt that her sons were “troubled” by a topless woman who was applying lotion.
A 26-year-old woman identified as Luisa was sunbathing at a beach south of Rome when the mother of two boys, aged 12 and 14, asked her to cover up because her breasts, and seeing her rub lotion on her body, troubled her sons.
When the sunbather refused to put on more clothing, the other woman went in search of police.
“Something like this happening in 2010 is absurd, The Telegraph reported lawyer Gianluca Arrighi as saying. “My client was approached and asked to cover up by the woman and she simply asked her what her problem was.
"From there the woman gathered up her children and went and complained to police.”
He said he cannot imagine any judge convicting a woman for topless sunbathing in 2010.
"Let's be clear my client is tall, brunette and has an ample breast and is therefore going to naturally be sensuous when she applies cream to her chest,” he added.
"This may well have attracted the attention of the women's two sons but it should not lead to my client being convicted. She is amazed that she is being condemned for simply sunbathing topless.”
Although topless sunbathing is not as popular as it once was, it is not illegal unless there is a local bylaw against it.
A police spokesman was quoted by The Telegraph saying: “A patrol was stopped by a mother of two sons who was angry at a topless sunbather and the way she was applying suntan cream.
“She told us that she had asked the woman to cover herself up because her young sons aged 12 and 14, had been admiring the sunbather and they had been troubled by what she was doing.
“The patrol went and took her details and she argued, still topless, that she could see no harm in what she was doing as it was a public beach. We have opened a file on committing an obscene act as we are committed to following the complaint. From what I heard she was very attractive.”
