The Famiglia Cristiana weekly has apologized for showing a naked bottom in a country where nudity is common in non-religious magazines. If you want to see what the fuss is about, Speigel’s Daily Take has published the photograph toward the bottom of the page.
The advert, for a maker of ventilation machines, shows a naked bottom through a misty glass shower door. â€œIf you want to see clearly, call an electrician now,â€ reads the text.
Editor Antonio Sciortino initially defended the magazineâ€™s decision to run the advert but backed down after complaints from readers.
Instead of apologising, shouldn’t he have just asked for forgiveness?
