Ban or Label GMO?
These countries have restrictions or have  banned GM/GMO foods:
Italy: The four regions Tuscany,  Molise, Lazio and Marche and around 25 provinces, cities and communes banned GE  crops, including Rome, Milan, Turin, Brescia and Genoa. These are all  democratically-taken decisions in local or regional councils and in the case of  Tuscany, the result has been ratified by the national government – the decision  means that regional governments have been given the authority under Italian law  to overturn decisions taken at EU level.
