Italy covered up naked statues ahead of Iranian president's visit
Fearing that naked Roman statues would be offensive to the Iranian President, Hassan Rouhani, Italian authorities chose to cover up several of the ancient statues ahead of the visit.

Rouhani is on a four-day visit in Italy and France this week, and it was during a visit at the famous Capitoline Museum in Rome that the authorities found it best to take certain precautions.

Several of the statues were painstakingly covered before the Iranian President came, among them the famous Venus statue, a 2 meter high nude stone-woman.

The Italian newspapers La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera were amused over the somewhat unusual precautions that were taken in connection with the Iranian president's visit and showed pictures of the white walls that surrounded the 'bold' ancient statues.

Rouhani and the Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, on Monday night held a joint press conference in the Capitoline Museum, before an official dinner for the Iranian president, where no wine was served.
