Palermo, July 25 - The Aeolian island of Lipari, near Sicily, issued an ordinance Thursday destined to restore modesty to the tourist mecca. People sporting bikinis, thongs or other swimming costumes in the town centre of this southern Italian volcanic paradise may be fined up to 500 euros. Lipari Mayor Marco Giorgianni ordered the new rule after residents and some tourists complained of the exhibitionism. Signs have been posted warning bathing-suit wearers, and local police have been authorized to give tickets.
