Better to be ignorant, in the sense of not knowing, rather than run the risk of disturbing "the sensibility of non-Catholic families". If the Supreme Court thought the dispute about the presence of the crucifix in classrooms had concluded, now the controversy begins again, even more dangerously, in something at the heart of Italian schools: teaching. It has happened in Florence, at the Matteotti elementary school, a large institution close to the city centre. On 9 November the inter-class council decided to cancel, for all of the school's third grade, the already scheduled visit to the "Bellezza Divina" [Divine Beauty] exhibition currently underway at the Palazzo Strozzi.
The motivation for cancelling the visit to the works of Van Gogh, Chagall, Fontana, but also Picasso, Matisse and Munch: "For going against the sensibility of the non-Catholic families in view of the religious theme of the exhibition".Source
