Hard on the heels of stoking anger over plans to open a restaurant in the Vatican, McDonald's has filed a $20-million lawsuit against Florence for blocking a proposed outlet in the city's most revered square.McDonald's said the suit was being filed with the administrative court, which arbitrates in governance disputes in Italy.According to several reports in the Italian media, McDonald's is particularly aggrieved in the case of Florence as it had promised to make major changes to its business model to fit in with local regulations.Last month, the daily La Republicca reported that plans to open a McDonald's in a piazza next to Saint Peter's Square in Rome had angered cardinals who live above the proposed site.
