Italian school forbids Christmas recital “not to disturb other religions”

The traditional Christmas recital in a school in the Italian town of Terni, in the centre of Italy, has been forbidden ‘not to offend pupils of different religions who are in the school’. The decision was taken by the headmaster of the Italian school, sparking backlash. “I hope the school will rethink its decision to forbid the Christmas recital to respect our Christian values which are part of our history and of our cultural heritage,” said Valeria Alessandrini, responsible of the local branch of the Lega Nord for school policies.
