Nude ancient Roman statues were covered up for Iranian President Hassan Rowhani's visit to Italy, local media reported Tuesday.
Many news websites, including those of major newspapers La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera, posted pictures of several exhibits at Rome's Capitoline Museums completely boarded up by white panels.
The Capitoline Museums hosted a press conference late Monday between Rowhani and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi. The ANSA news agency reported that no wine was served at the leaders' dinner, in another sign of respect for Rowhani's Muslim faith.
