Italy and FFP2 masks

Looking at the GOV website, when travelling to Italy they state to wear an FFP2 mask which seems very specific. I've traveled to a few places over the last couple of years where a normal surgical mask has been acceptable so for anyone who has flown to Italy in recent weeks did you see the specific FFP2 requirement being enforced ?

We flew last week with easy jet. All passengers were told they had to have that type of mask on to fly into the country. On the way neck no-one wore a mask at all.

We flew home last night. When we arrived last week we were told by cabin crew we needed one but then ground crew said we didn't (it was 1am though!). Yesterday noone was wearing them. We did see people be turned away from public buses though for not having them so I would recommend having some with you

Thanks both for your help. I was trying to avoid adding to my current large and varied collection of masks but I've just ordered some FFP2 to avoid any travel drama 🤣

The next update on ffp2s and transport will be on 15th June.
I flew home (into Italy) way back in April and Ryanair didn't enforce it. Out of Italy into the UK, easyJet did.

Three weeks ago BA enforced it on the way out but the rules changed on the day we flew back so we didn't wear them flying home. You did need them for public transport.

Well we've just landed in Verona on EasyJet and there was no requirement for any type of mask. Currently in a taxi and again not needed. Anyone in the market for 10 x FFP2 masks ? 🤣
