Some clarifications regarding the Green Pass:
■ The Ministry of Health has established that, starting from 1 June, in order to participate in some activities, even in the white zone, it is necessary to have a certification certifying that you have been vaccinated against Covid, that you have recovered from the disease, or that you are negative for a swab. This type of certification, starting from mid-June, will be available through a “Covid pass”, or “Green pass”, in electronic and paper format. But in the meantime, how can you have a valid certification? And on what occasions will it be shown?
■ When is it mandatory to present the pass?
The pass or, pending the final launch of the pass, the certification mentioned above – is mandatory, in the yellow zone and in the white zone, to participate in parties or banquets resulting from civil or religious ceremonies.

At the moment the clubs – intended as dance floors – are closed. The premises of clubs can be used as restaurants: in this case they follow the rules of the restaurants, and therefore the certification or the pass is not needed.

that provide Management to the right to refuse access to the local at its sole discretion.
Below are the most frequent causes of refusing access which are to be understood as purely by way of example and do not reduce the discretion of the staff responsible for the entrance.
Access is prohibited:
- under the age of 18 (ex-art. 7 del DL 158/2012 )
- people in a state of alcoholic intoxication*(ex-art 688 c.p.)
- individuals for whom is suspect the use or sale of drugs
- all those who have an aggressive attitude or that have been previously involved in acts of violence.
- poor personal hygiene
- clothing is not consonant with the standard of the club may result refused
- If the club has reached the capacity** limit as per D.M.19 August 1996 (and related laws)
- Also refused bachelor party, as well as access to the venue, is reserved for people coupled or in heterogeneous groups.
- Vulgarity, racism, or intransigence will be solved with the access refused or removed from the club.
- It is forbidden to introduce drinks contained in cans, glass bottles, metal water bottles or plastic bottles, animals of any kind and size, selfie sticks and tripods, umbrellas and rods, personal defense sprays, musical instruments, pens and laser pointers, remote-controlled drones, audio or video recording equipment, professional or semi-professional cameras, video cameras, GoPro, iPad and tablets
* At entrance to the premises, the staff is equipped with an alcohol tester and can invite customers to undergo test alcohol. In case of refusal, this will be considered as a lack of requirement for access to the premises
** To respect the full capacity of the venue, since December 2018, Old Fashion implements an admission protocol which excludes the temporary exit from the premises by stamping. Anyone leaving the premises is required (once they return to the entrance) to wait for the capacity (as per D.M.19 August 1996) to allow access and is required to pay the entry price again. This is mandatory because it’s not possible for the personnel in charge at the entrance (which is equipped with people counter), to ensure that capacity is respected inside the venue. We apologize for protocol, but it made for the safety of our customers.
■ Specific security service for women
The service is aimed at a more confidential approach to various types of problems, from harassment to the most intimate needs of the ladies present in the club.
In case of needs ( search for a taxi, a sense of concern to get to the car) Old Fashion ensures the accompaniment by a member of the security staff.
■ Safety and firefighting team
In the event of an evacuation, the members of the Firefighting Team will coordinate the clearing and security phases of the clientele.
■ Access Control rules:
As a result of international situation, since november 2015 , Old Fashion has a policy of access control through metal detectors at the entrance of the club run by qualified staff. It ‘s also implemented a visual check of the contents for bags and backpacks and the latter are required to be deposited in the cloakroom at the entrance.
The introduction of gas can for self-defense is not allowed
These products must be delivered to the security personnel, who will keep for the duration of the evening and return them at the exit of the customer ( if they are certified products by Ministry of Security ) otherwise, like any other type of tool able to attack , will be retained by the staff and reported to law enforcement.
At the entrance to the premises, the staff is equipped with an alcohol meter and can invite customers to undergo a test alcohol. In case of refusal this will be considered as a lack of requirement for access to the premises
■ Fight and contrast the marketing sale or trafficking of drugs:
In case of people caught in the act of crime Old Fashion management shall immediately report to the police.
We remind our customers that the introduction and use of cannabis ( light ) and derivatives regulated by law 242 of 2016 is prohibited, as it is not possible to verify the actual absence of active substance by the personnel. In compliance with the D.P.R. 309/90 “Consolidated text of the laws concerning the discipline of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, prevention, treatment and rehabilitation of the relative states of drug addiction” as amended by Law 21 February 2006, n. 49.
Anyone who is responsible for/or involved in events that may lead Police to implement the suspension of the license and subsequent closure of the premises by Art 100 of the TULPS will be pursued through the courts by Old Fashion Ltd. in order to obtain compensation for damages suffered.
Anyone who has been removed from the premises for violations of rules of conduct, can no longer return in the future, without time limit.
■ Leaving temporary the venue is not allowed
This protocol is active since December 2018; the reason – unfortunately – depends by fatal facts of Corinaldo ( Ancona – Italy ) where 6 people perished ( Lanterna Azzurra Club).
Since then the Prefecture of Milan has issued a note in which it recommends that the capacities of the premises be strictly respected as per DM 19 August 1996 (which establishes the criteria by which the Supervisory Commissions issue the capacity, that is, the number of people who can be present simultaneously in a venue ). To comply this requirement, Old Fashion security personnel, are equipped by “people counter” that progresses with the admission and decreases with the exit of people.
To be sure that this count is accurate ( and the safety rules are thus respected ), we cannot let anyone go out temporarily, because we could not ensure the safety of our customers, risking to exceed the legal number with dangerous repercussions both legal and – of course – for safety.
If a customer leaves the premises, upon return, payment of the entry price will be required. This even if the customer has left his clothes in the wardrobe.
Any new entry to the premises is anyway subject to reaching capacity limit.
■ What ‘s included in the entrance fee ?
The entrance fee to Old Fashion varies depending by night and event type with different prices for events ( aperitif or disco ) and by day of week ( weekday or weekend ) . Please, be certain you have checked the price of the evening to which you wish to attend.
The entrance to venue always includes the drink both for the whole price then if is reduced , however the service excluding wardrobe service that must be paid separately.
