Italian anchorwoman criticised for wearing a crucifix on air

Italian anchorwoman Marina Nalesso, who presents the news on one of Italy’s main public channel TG1, has been criticised for wearing a crucifix on air while reading the news. This wasn’t the first time that the Italian journalist has worn religious accessories on air.

rosario-al-colloMember of the Democratic Party in Turin Silvio Viale asks if this behaviour should be considered normal.

Others accused Nalesso of being arrogant and not respecting different religions.

Centre-right politicians took her defence, with the leader of Fratelli d’Italia Giorgia Meloni posting a message of solidarity on social media.
