Italian Mayor to ‘Jersey Shore’ Cast: No Bars, No Booze
What’s a season of ‘Jersey Shore‘ without a bar fight or public binge drinking?
We’ll soon find out as the cast of the MTV show heads to Florence, Italy, where the mayor has given the show a list of strict rules to follow during their stay to film season 4.
According to the New York Post, the mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi, listed several rules in the Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera for the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast to follow.
Renzi’s rules are pretty strict — at least by MTV standards — and they include:
► The cast will not be filmed in bars and clubs that serve alcohol.
► The cast will not be filmed drinking in public.
► The show will not be filmed to promote Florence as a drinking town.
► The show should be filmed in a manner to promote Italy (not Americans visiting Italy) and feature its culture and good food.
Additionally, the cast will not be permitted to film inside of any historic buildings, though Renzi said he could not stop them from using Florence scenery as a backdrop for the show.
Renzi’s rules come after some Italians expressed outrage that the MTV show would be filming in their country.
The ingredients for an entertaining ‘Jersey Shore’ episode include copious amounts of alcohol, solid house music and some guidos/guidettes. Take away the booze and the clubs and we’re left with Snooki, The Situation and their friends soberly touring the Italian countryside.
If these rules are to be taken seriously, we’d prefer another Miami season in a heartbeat.
