Earlier on Sunday, Italian authorities announced tougher quarantine restrictions in four regions in response to an increase in Covid-19 infections.
On Sunday evening, Health Minister Robertp Speranca announced that the closure of ski resorts was being extended.
Speranca said the resorts should remain closed due to the increased risk posed by the new, more contagious strains of coronavirus.
Previously, the government had allowed ski resorts to resume work in the so-called yellow zones, where the risk of infection was found to be moderate.
Meanwhile, the regions of Tuscany, Liguria and Abruzzo, as well as the Autonomous Province of Trento, have been transferred to the orange zone by the Ministry of Health.
This means that bars and restaurants are closed in these areas, but people are not allowed to leave their area of residence, except in emergencies. These restrictions will be valid for at least 15 days.
Most regions in Italy are currently in the yellow zone, but there is still a night curfew throughout Italy starting at 22.00.
On Sunday, 11,000 new infections were confirmed in Italy, and the number of infections registered per 100,000 population in seven days is 130.
