Shock at window-women tourism idea

Tuscan regional councillor Roberto Salvini sparks controversy

(ANSA) - Florence, September 20 - Tuscany regional councilor Roberto Salvini, a member of the Euroskeptic, anti-immigration League party, has sparked a controversy by proposing putting "women in windows to help tourism" while speaking about prostitution during a meeting of the regional commission for economic development.
    Salvini's proposal was reported by Democratic Party (PD) regional councilor Monia Monni, who attended the meeting.
    Monni published on Facebook a video with Salvini's statements, saying that she was disgusted by the proposal.
