It was on 9. In March 1908, when a group of Italians and Swiss migrants caught in a Restaurant near the Duomo in Milan the decision to revolutionize the Calcio and also a piece of the company. After a few glasses of red wine, according to the legend, they wrote the motto of "fratelli del mondo", the brothers of the world, on a napkin, and founded a club Internazionale. There were dissidents in the city rivals AC Milan, who did not want to accept the fact that foreigners should be prohibited to play in Italy football. From 1928 to 1945, had to rename Internazionale in the Ambrosiana, because the fascist Regime under Benito Mussolini despised the club as a disrespect to the father of the country.
On the 26. December 2018 Kalidou Koulibaly, a defender from the SSC Napoli has been considered by Fans of FC Internazionale Milano in every touch of the ball with the monkeys are, the game should have been canceled according to the articles of Association of the Italian football Federation. And not only since then, is clear: The Revolution has failed, the concern of the founding fathers of silent behind the dull hatred from the Terraces.
Now, racism in Italy's football stadiums is not a new phenomenon, lived out under the guise of Internazionale, he only acts especially cynical. President of the Inter-Steven Zhang, a 27-year-old Chinese. On the social networks of these recalled the history of the club, and mayor Giuseppe Sala, a self-confessed Interista, apologized in his name "for the healthy part of Milan." Other politicians, football managers and players positioned themselves clearly. All this, however, is also a part of the problem Is gone, the outrage only once, then no-one is interested in the racial resentment of the spectators. And so exactly can not determine when there is actually a cause for outrage.

Boateng says: "It is worse than before"
In 2013, the team of the AC Milan in a friendly game once closed of course, because Kevin-Prince Boateng are solid with Monkeys and Whistling was provoked. Two years later, the six accused were acquitted, because the Calls occurred only rarely and exclusively against Boateng. Because: With the Dutchman Urby Emanuelson, another dark-skinned player for Milan on the pitch, but was not offended. To be able to of racism, so to speak, the reasoning of the court, had been followers of your focus on Emanuelson, so all the dark-skinned players waste need to mow. In an Interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport Boateng wondered, in the meantime, the US Sassuolo in the Serie A under contract a few days ago: "If this was not racism, then what? Should we wait for the hate to kill someone?"
Koulibaly is insulted in almost every away game is racist, in Rome, Genoa, Bergamo. When he scored in last season's last-Minute winner against Juventus, in Turin, the Arena in front of all, "U-u-u-u"-to listen to Loud. The Italian League is paused until the 19th century. January. It will be exciting to see how the trailer after the break to present.
outrage is there actually anyway only if prominent names public to make effective the first step. In the case of Koulibaly, it was his coach Carlo Ancelotti, asked after the game to the public consequences. Also, the impulsive reactions of the Italian striker Mario Balotelli were always cause for debate.
An idea of Milan's mayor Sala is not implemented
interior Minister Matteo Salvini, head of the right-wing populist government party Lega Nord, interprets the events in the Calcio after their own political Agenda. After Koulibaly-incident, he argued during an appearance in the Italian TV show Tiki Taka: "Bonucci was booed by Milan Fans, is that racism? Violent provocations under Fans can't be equated with racism." Leonardo Bonucci moved before the season from AC Milan to Juventus and was involved in the summer indirectly to one of Salvini-fired debate. The Italian national team players were threatened before a game due to injury, so Mario Balotelli, the first dark-skinned player in the history of the Squadra Azzurra, almost for the first dark-skinned captain would become.
The Tradition in Italy is that the player with the most appearances in the binding, in the test game against France that would have been then Balotelli. Salvini said Balotelli, however, that this could be representative of the country - and was then quoted in numerous hate speech, which were then in the social networks against the striker wide. The response from Balotelli was unusually level-headed: A model must not wear the bandage, he said, "but it would have been an important Signal for all of the migrants in Italy to see someone with African roots as a captain". In the end it came to be, but because of Bonucci played yet.
not implemented an idea of Milan's mayor Sala after the incident to Koulibaly was in the act. This had suggested that in the next game of the Inter the Ghanaian Kwadwo Asamoah as a captain should accrue, to set a sign against racism. In the away game against FC Empoli's first-choice at Inter captain Mauro Icardi had, but again, the bandage around the Arm. However, with the symbolism and the stadium lock alone it is not done, the political climate in Italy is poisoned since the refugee debate. The Kevin-Prince Boateng. "It is even worse than earlier," he told the Gazzetta dello Sport, "I was offended by about 50 Fans at the San Siro (in the case of Koulibaly, d. ed.) there were 5000, maybe 10 000." Already in the school must preventively be applied, of course, as in the case of "a lesson in mathematics". To this proposal expressed Lega-chief Salvini still.
