‘The monkeys are a metaphor for humans’

Artist Fugazzotto wants to say with his work, especially in showing how complex people can be. “Whether we are catholic, muslim, or buddhist, it is our actions that make us who we really are. Not the colour of our skin. For me, these are the monkeys used as a metaphor for the people, because of the origin, then we are all monkeys.”

All of the clubs in Serie A were last month, in a joint statement on anti-racism in the Italian stadiums. “Enough is enough”, and wrote, among other things. “No one would ever be racist in any way helpful, both on and off the field. We are no longer able to remain silent, or to wait until this problem will self-solve.”

They spoke out after a number of incidents this season. Thus, among others, Mario the premier league and Romelu Lukaku are racist in any way. Furthermore, the Italian newspaper, Corriere dello Sport, under fire, on his front page with the headline ‘Black Friday’ to be used in addition to a photo of Lukaku and Roma’s defender Chris Smalling.
