Rome, one of Europe’s most traffic-clogged cities and home to thousands of ancient outdoor monuments threatened by pollution, plans to ban diesel cars from the city center by 2024.
Mayor Virginia Raggi announced the decision on her Facebook page on Tuesday, saying: “If we want to intervene seriously, we have to have the courage to adopt strong measures”.
Her comments followed a court ruling in Germany that cities there can ban the most heavily polluting diesel cars from their streets.
