British Foreign Office apologises over discriminatory school forms

The Foreign Office of Great Britain has apologised for the discriminatory contents included in school enrollment forms for the children of Italian citizens living in the country, the Italian embassy in London said. Ambassador Pasquale Terracciano protested vehemently because one of part of the form included a discriminatory categorization of Italians depending on whether they come from Naples or Sicily. Terracciano said that he received a phone call informing him that the British government will formally apologise and modify the form. The ambassador protested in the last few days after many parents of Italian children reported that they had to specify the ethnicity they were part of: 'Ita', or 'Italian'; 'Itaa', or 'other Italians'; 'Itan' or 'Italian Neapoletan'; and 'Itas'; or 'Italian Sicilian'.
