Maneuver parachutes Damaged equipment seized on the beach


The bad habit of leaving umbrellas and chairs on the free beach after sunset is sanctioned by the navigation code (section 1161) which deals with “unlawful occupation of government property and violation of private property boundaries”. The occupation of public land by bathers in order to obtain a part of the beach with umbrellas and sunbeds, to completely own those few square meters of beach for a certain number of days, has always been done in every part of Italy. There has always been the intervention of public power, although in alternate phases. To get the magnitude of the phenomenon, just look at some numbers related to the free beaches of Cupra Marittima, where in several inspections during the summer, 265 devices were seized: 86 umbrellas, 68 umbrella brackets, 36 umbrella bases. , 73 of the seats, chairs and sunbeds and even two plastic tables. The port master’s office arrested them and no one exercised the right to appeal the assessment report prepared by the staff of the Inland Sea Office. No “clever umbrella”, as it is clear, has claimed eternity and asked for the return of seized goods, as they could risk a fine of up to three thousand euros. Since it was not possible to enforce the administrative sanctions, once the legal provisions had passed, the Municipality, in collaboration with Picenambiente, proceeded with the destruction and disposal of all materials.
