Entertainment and recreation businesses are characterised by:

  • a predominant recreational activity in terms of higher turnover, namely entertainment or shows
  • a secondary and accessory activity, namely providing food and drink.


In order to start an entertainment and recreation business, a complex procedure is required:



  1. Anti-mafia requirements of all the individuals prescribed by Article 85 of Italian Legislative Decree dated September 6 2011, number 159
  2. Moral requirements pursuant to Article 71 of Italian Legislative Decree dated March 26 2010, number 59 of all the individuals prescribed by Article 85 of Italian Legislative Decree dated September 6 2011, number 159
  3. Moral requirements of the owner, the legal representative, the T.U.L.P.S. representative, and the designated supervisors pursuant to Articles 11, 92, and 131 of Italian Royal Decree dated June 6 1931, number 773;
  4. Professional requirements:
  • of the owner or the designated supervisor
  • of the legal representative or the designated supervisor

for the sale of food products, prescribed by Article 71 of Italian Legislative Decree dated March 26 2010, number 59. The request for the recognition of professional qualifications acquired abroad by EU and non-EU citizens is submitted to the Italian Ministry of Economic Development.


The designated supervisor must be appointed when the activity is not directly exercised by the owner or legal representative.

The designated supervisor may also be the T.U.L.P.S. representative, which is the individual who permanently replaces the owner or legal representative, taking his/her place in his/her name and on his/her behalf. The T.U.L.P.S. representative is a figure specified in Articles 8 and 93 of Italian Royal Decree dated June 6 1931, number 773.



Food service businesses are permitted to be established in any zoning district, in compliance with Municipal regulations.

Food service businesses must be able to be supervised, in other words, they must comply with the construction characteristics prescribed by Italian Ministerial Decree dated December 17 1992, number 564.

Public entrances or exits must allow <<direct access from the street, square, or other public place and may not be used for access to private dwellings>>.
Surveillance prevents or slows down the escape of "criminals " and supports access by the public safety authority.


The start of the activity is subject to the availability, on the part of the owner, of the premises in which the owner is planning to exercise the activity; availability also exists if the premises are the subject of construction or renovation.


Operation of the activity is subject to compliance of the premises with building, town planning, and health and hygiene regulations, as well as fire prevention and public safety regulations.

The start of the activity is subject to a certified notification of business opening (SCIA).
