Black Italian actress describes racist messages on live TV
A Black Italian actress said she received online harassment for the color of her skin after it was announced she would appear as a guest at Italy’s annual Sanremo music festival.
Lorena Monroe Cesarini, 34, read some of the messages to the audience during Wednesday night’s broadcast of the festival on RAI state television.
“They invited you because you are Black,” read one message that said she did not deserve to be there. She quoted another one that read: “Maybe they called you to wash the staircase or water the plants.”
Cesarini said she had never experienced racism as a child in Italy, and the abuse started as soon as it was announced that she would be a guest of the event.
“Evidently for someone, the color of my skin is a problem,” said the actress best known for her role in the Italian serial drama “Suburra.”
Cesarini, who was born in Dakar, Senegal, to a Senegalese mother and Italian father, received shouts of support from the live audience, including one who yelled, “You’re Italian,” to which she responded, “Yes, and proud.”
She told the audience that she remained perplexed by the messages: “Why do people feel the necessity to write such things on social media? Why do people have a problem with the color of my skin?”
In recent years, racism in Italy has gotten a lot of attention. Both public and private Italian TV have been criticized for the excessive use of racist language and imagery, as well as the lack of substantial representation of second-generation Africans or Asians in society. In addition, black Italian designers have lobbied for greater inclusion in the fashion industry.
“Lorena and her monologue are the reason we are doing the work we are doing,” said Michele Ngonmo, the head of Afro Fashion Week Milan who has been helping develop a database of Black creatives working in Italy and promoting young designers of color.
During his wide-ranging statements to lawmakers on Thursday, Italian President Sergio Mattarella referred to racism and antisemitism as “intolerable aggressions.”
