Italy’s Far Right Targets a Museum Discount for Arabic Speakers

“There is racism in Italy — against Italians,” Ms. Meloni proclaimed.

The museum director, Christian Greco, left his office inside the building to confront the chanting protesters.

“The museum belongs to everybody,” Mr. Greco explained calmly to Ms. Meloni, in an exchange that was captured on video, and then widely circulated on social media and on Italian television stations over the weekend.

Mr. Greco made the point that the museum belonged to everyone and had various promotions to lure many types of visitors — including discounts for couples on Valentine’s Day.
