I visited here in 2018 and am still here now and have never experienced such racism towards black people!!! I am white skinned (origin no need for explanation but easily passed for being Italian myself) my husband is black, we walked into restaurants empty to be told “sorry no reservations, no table” and also to be stared at everywhere we go, people beeping their car horns as we walk down the road!!! people making comments and turning to stare!!!! Locals rude and very unwelcoming, seeing as Italy is supposed to be classy and upmarket they all were not nothing to get excited by ! I wanted to scream “you are working in a restaurant or shop on a retail salary” but I am not a snob! Saddened by the whole experience and will never return!!! Racism in this day and age is so sad and I was so looking forward to visiting this beautiful country which is indeed beautiful but the people are not!!! Just also to point out we were not naked or underdressed just normal people middle aged looking to appreciate the culture and beautiful country!
