News recently broke about the potential opening of a McDonald’s in piazza del Duomo, in the building currently occupied by Universo Sport. McDonald’s Italia presented plans to the city council for a new-style restaurant with table service. The application was made possible due to a loophole in recently introduced UNESCO regulations in Florence to cut down on new businesses that sell a minimum of Italian foodstuffs, a move introduced to reduce minimarkets selling alcohol after hours. The new legislation includes a clause whereby companies wishing to open new stores can request a waiver, which is evaluated by a commission comprising city councillors, the chamber of commerce and UNESCO representatives.
