Morocco: Italian fashion company upsets Muslims with madrassa pictures
Italian fashion designer Fornarina got Muslims upset by their latest advertising shoot in Marrakesh. Fornarina used an abandoned madrassa to advertise their new collection, with their scantily-clad model posing in front of various Koran quotes on the walls. Saudi broadcaster Al Arabiya devoted considerable time to the incident, interviewing Moroccans at home and in Italy, who condemned the company. Fornarina, who say they got all the necessary permits for the shoot from the Moroccan government, say they will remove the offending images.
