The internal regulations of the water park in Melilli, Sicily, do not allow the entry of animals, including indispensable ones. This caused a non-seeing visitor with a guide dog to be denied access to the park. The incident has been denounced, and apologies have been issued by the local government. The administrator responsible for social policies and inclusion expresses deep regret for the situation, stating that it goes against the values of solidarity and hospitality of the town. The local government is working on projects aimed at inclusivity and accessibility for differently-abled individuals. It remains to be seen if these apologies and actions will alleviate the controversy surrounding the incident.
