On Sunday 27 October at the Atlantico of Rome we participated in the sixth edition of one of the most important events that the Capital has to offer. Urban culture , of course, is the host. Inside the exhibition space we find stands of sneaker , clothing , street accessories. Not only new and innovative pieces, but also vintage and limited editions. Impossible not to stop in front of pieces that have made the history of street culture. Thousands of people wandered curiously and fascinated among exhibitors. But Kickit is much more. It is a meeting place for enthusiasts and artists, it is a place of exchange, of interaction.

Corriere dello Sport's controversial "Black Friday" headline focusing on Romelu Lukaku and Chris Smalling proves the media is a part of Italy's discrimination problem, according to anti-racism campaigners Kick It Out. With Inter and Roma set to tussle in Serie A this Friday, the sports publication previewed the contest on its front page on Thursday. But the prevalence of "Black Friday" — a term used to describe the first Friday after Thanksgiving in the United States when retail sales mark the start of the Christmas shopping period — saw the publication focus on the reunion of former Manchester United team-mates Smalling and Lukaku, and specifically the colour of their skin. Troy Townsend, head of development for equality and inclusion organisation Kick It Out, said errors in judgement help to normalise discrimination in Italy, a country that has been dogged by incidents of racism this season. Speaking to Omnisport, Townsend said: "We're not shocked, are we? We've seen a number of incidents in Italy this season alone. Then he had his own president [Massimo Cellino] talk about him in the way he did, saying he was ['black and is working on lightening up']. While we thought it was an issue for the federation, who allow racism in their stadiums and allow the very identity of black people to be dehumanised, questioned and devalued, we now realise again — like we have in the UK — that the press have a massive part to play in this as well. That's my massive issue — you're influencing the masses with whatever you put out, front page or back page. I can guarantee both of them will tell whoever it needs to be as it is and not be led by a limp statement afterwards.
