Interview: Photographer Ermes Contrasti Italy. Can you tell us a little about you? How and when did you get into photography? What does photography mean to you? Where do you get inspiration from? Neutrality was successfully used as the crucial criteria to distinguish between what is and is not allowed in public schools. The Italian political and legal environments have been continuously involved in the topic of religion at school. There are various reasons for this: first, because there are some constitutional provisions about private schools Art. Stato, 27 aprile , n.
It said that the crucifix was consistent with the constitutional principle of freedom of religion and of conscience since it did not impede on the freedom of speech and did not inhibit discussion in the classrooms.
It simply reflected the cultural roots of the Italian state, and therefore it had to be considered as a cultural sign rather than a religious one. The first Italian case concerning the crucifix was only indirectly linked with the presence of the crucifix at a public school. It originated when a man who had been called to work at the ballots refused to obey and was therefore prosecuted according to a penal rule sanctioning people who do not comply with this mandatory duty. He did not want to be associated with such a symbol, even though the classroom where he was actually placed did not have a crucifix inside.
The case finally arrived at the Court of Cassation. The Court does not have the power to annul legal or administrative rules; its general task is to grant a uniform interpretation of the laws. In this case, the Court had to examine if the previous judges were correct in interpreting the rule and delivering the sanction. The Court reversed the judgments and excused the defendant accused of violating the law. The Court of Cassation could have contradicted the Council of State and endorsed the opinion that the symbol could influence the freedom of conscience of the people working at the ballots.

However, this would not have dealt with the accusation involved in that specific case since there was no crucifix in that room. Therefore, this would have meant an implicit affirmation of the display of the crucifix, but the defendant would have been found guilty. This interpretation was helped by the constitutional article affirming that public administration is impartial Art. The Court focused on this aspect by underlining the relationship between the symbol and the state, rather than focusing on the symbol and the people who were obliged to be in the presence of such a symbol.
Now, the Court could also draw on the German experience and the debate that it had raised throughout continental Europe. The Federal Constitutional Court of Germany had declared the presence of the crucifix to be unconstitutional because it contaminated the secular realm and profaned a religious sign through its public display. As a result of the decision, the man on trial was discharged. But the indirect effect was essentially a declaration that the crucifix in the public school was unconstitutional.
Even though such an affirmation did not have any effect on the display of the crucifix, Di Cosimo, supra note , at Di Cosimo, supra note , at The second aspect concerned the ideological meaning of the principle. Through this reasoning, the Court admitted that such a principle is not just a standard for public powers—it is also a moral principle since people can adhere to it as to a personal ideal.
The Court of Cassation did not make any distinction. The most meaningful example can be seen in the German case that was mentioned by the Court of Cassation. A law of the German State of Bavaria requested that the cross be displayed in public schools and the Constitutional Tribunal intervened and struck down the law.
See Ceccanti, supra note 31, at It is interesting to notice that Bavaria insisted on keeping the cross in the schools, while the Constitutional Tribunal maintained that public display of religious symbols did not only contaminate the public sphere, but also profaned religious signs because it detached them from their religious context and introduced them into a profane sphere.
The entire German affair seems to reflect the distance between the Protestant vision and the Catholic vision. The first sees the cross as a symbol that reminds people of the vanity of the earthly world, while the second believes the crucifix to be an open affirmation of universal values to which earthly life must be aligned.
Conversely, the German Tribunal reflected the wider Protestant culture when it considered the profanation of the religion. Cavana, supra note 40, at 6. Moreover, Italian scholarship provides evidence of the strong influence of the religious culture over cases such as this.
Among the many Italian scholars who have criticized the display of the cross, one can find very few people maintaining that religion itself would suffer a violation of its pureness if the state were to display religious signs. This seems to be a symptom of the historical role of Catholic thought, even among intellectuals who are adverse to the public display of the crucifix. Its new implication—the elimination of religious symbols from the public place—is not consistent with the first decisions of the Constitutional Court. The Court of Cassation detached the principle from its Italian origins and placed it closer to the French tradition.
It endorsed a doctrine that was most influenced by French constitutional heritage.
It did so by saying that such an interpretation was inconsistent with the Italian precedent and more in accord with the historical characters of the principle. This new jurisprudence fostered a treatment of religious pluralism that was more akin to the French model. Some years later, a Muslim father of primary school students asked for the removal of the crucifix from the classroom of his two children. Given that the merits of the case were decided by a different court, the civil tribunal never delivered the final decision. Nevertheless, it did not give any new rationales therefore it can be omitted.
Montanaro, para. Moreover, according to the tribunal, the presence of the crucifix would threaten the religious and ideological freedom and education of the students.

It would not just be a traditional symbol, simply expressing the legacy of the Italian culture. Rather it would be read as an affirmation of the absolute value of one faith and one belief at the expense of all others. Montanaro It. The tribunal recognized that the school was a major battlefield between the Catholic Church and the state. For several decades, both proclaimed different ideologies and tried to impose their own ideals and ethics over society through the education of young people. It will suffice to underline the analogies between the different trends of the constitutional jurisprudence and other courts.
The first decisions regarding the state support for Christian culture and its symbols See, e. The constitutional jurisprudence first depicted it as a synthetic description of constitutional provisions concerning religious freedom and the relationship between church and state, characterized by the possibility of strong connection and even of collaboration between the two.
According to this approach, the governance of religious pluralism consisted of activating new relationships with religions other than Catholicism through negotiation as well as admitting religion in public institutions. The distance between the religious and the secular realms was believed to be necessary for the protection of public institutions as well as the right tool to govern pluralism. The tension between the two interpretations of the very same provisions derives from a huge political and cultural Italian debate that opposes Catholic culture to a separatist one.

The confrontation between different vantage points has often become a confrontation about the influential role that Catholicism plays in shaping the political agenda and influencing voters as well as about the legitimacy of such a role for the Catholic Church.
In short, the debate over the separation of church and state mainly concerns a key topic—the cultural and political role of Catholicism with respect to the increasing pluralism of the Italian population. Interestingly, Romano Prodi, while President of the Council, had to face the fierce opposition of Catholic bishops to a referendum held from June 12 to 13, , that aimed to enlarge the possibility of using the in vitro fertilization law. While the bishops called for a large abstention that would lead to the failure of the referendum, Prodi went to vote, notwithstanding his notorious Catholic faith.
When he was asked the reasons for disobeying the indications of bishops, he replied that he considered himself an adult Catholic, suggesting that he knew how to apply the values he was raised with, without the help of bishops. The contemporary political landscape fuels the debate and makes finding an answer to this question more urgent.
