Years of cuts are over says minister

(ANSA) - Rome, July 10 - Culture Minister Alberto Bonisoli said Tuesday that the 5-Star Movement/League government's first budget law will feature extra money for culture.
    "This country needs a change of pace. The years of culture cuts are over," Bonisoli said as he presented his programme to a joint session of Lower House and Senate culture committees.
