To clarify: In response to the G8 Summit being held in Italy, Minister of Home Affairs Roberto Maroni announced that the Schengen Treaty would be suspended in Italy from June 28 to July 15, 2009, so travelers from Schengen area countries will have to carry a passport and go through border controls to enter Italy.

World leaders willl be meeting in L'Aquila for the Summit from July 810.
