RAI chief apologizes for 'crazy' Eastern women report
Show focused on why some Italian men go for Eastern Europeans
20 Marzo 2017
Rome, March 20 - RAI President Monica Maggioni apologized on Monday amid controversy over a report that the State broadcaster ran at the weekend on why some Italian men form relationships with women from Eastern Europe. "I didn't see the show. I'm finding out about it from websites," Maggioni told ANSA. "What I see is a surreal representation of Italy in 2017. Then, if this representation is given by the public service broadcaster, it is a crazy mistake, unacceptable. I personally feel involved as a woman. I apologize".
