Italian football has experienced several racist incidents this season. Black players have especially been targeted for abuse prompting the authorities to launch a campaign to denounce the vice.
But the campaign has ended in even more controversy. An artist contracted to create a poster that symbolizes diversity and tolerance has been criticized for his logo which shows three monkeys of different colours and a message ‘Say No to Racism’.
Monkey cries have been used by racist fans to mock black players in Italy.
