OK to school crucifixes,nativity scenes

'Part of our identity, traditions' says edu min Bussetti

(ANSA) - Rome, November 29 - The education ministry on Thursday gave its approval to installing crucifixes and nativity scenes in all Italian classrooms.
    "The Crucifix is for me the symbol of our history, our culture, our traditions: I don't see how it can cause any irritation in our school rooms, on the contrary it may help kids to reflect," said Education Minister Marco Bussetti.
    Likewise for nativity scenes, or 'presepi', Bussetti said he was in favour of setting them up in schools at Christmas because "they are part of our identity".
