International visitors yes, but only if they are prepared to take the Covid detection test. A new law, issued in September, makes this obligatory and the government states that it will be required until 7th October, causing a substantial protraction of   the anti-Covid measures issued in August. It does, however, open up international exhibitions scheduled in Italy to foreign visitors, even from non Schengen countries. 

The ban on the public being present in stadium events still applies, discotheques  and dance halls remain closed, and the use of face masks in closed-in areas and on public transport, where the social distancing rule of one meter cannot be applied, continue. Whereas, the latest government ruling from President Conte permits travel  within Italy, (without quarantine, unless Covid symptoms are present), even for reasons such as “work requirements, including participation in sporting events and international exhibitions, for which, however, subjects are required to provide proof  of having undergone, in the 72 hours prior to entry to the national territory, a molecular or antigen test, carried out by means of a swab and negative result.” 

This is an important decision as it opens up the doors to buyers from abroad, enabling  them to take part in international events, including those organised by Riva del Garda Fierecongressi.
