A poster advertisement for Italian beer brand Peroni has been cleared by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). The ASA received a complaint about a poster, which showed a Vespa scooter and a bottle of Peroni beer, that claimed the advertisement was irresponsible because it linked alcohol with youth culture and could promote drink driving. The ASA said: "Because the Peroni bottle and the moped were presented in isolation as symbols of Italian design, we concluded the ad did not link alcohol with youth culture or promote drink driving.”
