Controversy in Turin over LGBT art show poster

Image called sacrilegious by critics of exhibition

(ANSA) - Turin, September 2 - Controversy has erupted in northern Italy over a poster used to promote an art exhibition organized by Turin's gay community and bearing an image some say is sacrilegious.
    The poster for the show, sponsored by the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transsexual community (LGBT), is decorated with a photo of an art work depicting a large naked woman with one foot propped on a religious image.
    The exhibition is called the International Art Exhibition LGBTE (The Great Battle To find Results) and with the inscription 'Saligia', a likely reference to 14th century art that often used the mnemonic acronym based on the first letters in Latin of the seven deadly sins.
