Britain’s Foreign Office apologizes to Italian Resident for ‘Racist’ form

Italy has been a unified country since March 17, 1861, the Italian embassy pointed out to the British government

Rome, Oct 13, 2016: Britain’s Foreign Office has said it was sorry for an online form that asks Italian resident in the UK if they are “Italian, Neapolitan or Sicilian” – 155 years after the unification of Italy.

Italian ambassador to Britain Pasquale Terracciano said he was satisfied with the government’s apology for the form which parents of schoolchildren in parts of England and Wales were asked to complete.

“It was an error due rather to ignorance and carelessness on the part of a few education authorities rather than a real wish to discriminate,” Terracciano stated.

The British government has said it was asking for the form to be changed, he said.

“It is important to avoid misunderstandings that can arise in this delicate post-Brexit period,” said Terracciano, referring to Britain’s decision to leave the European Union in a referendum on 23 June.
