“YES to crucifixes and nativity scenes in all Italian classrooms, they are part of our identity” – Italian Educational Minister

ANSA: “The Crucifix is for me the symbol of our history, our culture, our traditions: I don’t see how it can cause any irritation in our school rooms, on the contrary it may help kids to reflect,” said Italian Education Minister Marco Bussetti. Likewise for nativity scenes, or ‘presepi’, Bussetti said he was in favour of setting them up in schools at Christmas because “they are part of our identity”.
