Lombardy: Row over 'Italian Butcher' sign
Islam in Europe
Antonino Verduci, a butcher in Treviglio (Lombardy), has noticed that business has been getting worse in recent weeks. He says that this was because a rumor was spread in town that he was a Muslim butcher. In order to reassure his customers, he put up a flag and a sign saying "Italian Butcher". Verduci was roundly condemned on the internet for being racist, but his store is now back in business, with many in town showing solidarity with him.
