Italy protests some UK school forms

Applicants asked to identify as 'Neapolitan' or 'Sicilian' Italian

(ANSA) - London, October 11 - Some school districts in England and Wales have three categories of Italians on their application forms, and the Italian embassy in London lodged a protest Tuesday. The forms currently ask applicants to identify themselves as being of Italian, Neapolitan-Italian, or Sicilian-Italian origin. "Italy has been a unified country since March 17, 1861," the embassy pointed out.
