On Ms Nalesso’s Facebook page, a fan posted: “We have been marginalised for some time, not the other way around.”
Others were also riled up by the complaints, citing Islamic wear such as the burkini, which has caused controversy in Europe over the summer.
The Burkini was recently banned on some French beaches, however the ban was later revoked by the country’s highest administrative court as judges said such bans “seriously, and clearly illegally, breached the fundamental freedoms to come and go, the freedom of beliefs and individual freedom”.
Despite the calls from people to ban all religious symbols being worn by news broadcasters and others on television, in Italy RAI has never taken a decisions to do so.
This differs from Norway, where the state bans journalists from expressing in any way their religious faith while working.
