Palermo, November 27 - A northern Italian
politician and mid-level member of the populist Northern League
party sparked an online brouhaha on Tuesday when he referred to
Sicily as Africa in a Facebook comment.
"It is our team's first official game in Africa," said
Massimo Bessone of the Verona soccer team's scheduled match with
Palermo in the Sicilian team's home stadium on Tuesday evening.
The two teams are vying for position in the Italian Cup.
Bessone lives in the northeastern region of Trentino-Alto
Adige, and is a city council member for Bressanone.
He is also a coordinator for the Northern League, which
advocates seceding from central and southern Italy.
Bessone made his comment on the "Hellas Verona Style"
Facebook page.
Bessone's website vigorously denied that either he or the
Northern League were racist.
