Reach out to your immigrant classmates, Boldrini says (ANSA) - Rome, February 3 - Italian House Speaker Laura Boldrini on Monday called on students at a Rome high school to reach out to their immigrant peers instead of rejecting them.

"You have the possibility to either isolate or include a foreign schoolmate," Boldrini told students at the capital's historic Mamiani high school, which dates back to 1885.

"You must be curious to find out about personal histories that are different from your own. You could have a lot to teach adults in this way," the House Speaker said.
