There are 3 Low Emission Zones in Rome:

1) Green zone

2) Railway ring

3) City centre with delivery regulations covering a slightly larger area than the main centre of Rome

There are also access regulations in place, see Rome - AR and Roma - Coaches.
There is also the possibility of emergency measures on days with extreme pollution, particularly in the winter. Options include banning alternating number plates, or a ban all vehicles. Notification is by the local press.

Ecological Sundays: the mayor has banned vehicles from driving through the Italian capital on Sundays in a bid to tackle severe smog. Police have been advised to fine anyone who flouts the tough traffic restrictions.

On ecological Sundays all vehicles are banned from 07:30 – 12:30 und 16:30 – 20:30.

And in the entire capital of Rome vehicles including motorcycles and motorbikes without an annual inspection are not allowed to circulate.
