A cemetery in Bologna has started covering up the crosses in a chapel whenever non-Christians (presumably mostly Muslims) hold ceremonies there. From what I can gather based on the video and the article, the chapel also functions as a crypt, and each of the locations in the wall where the remains of loved ones are interred is marked with the symbol that people find so offensive.
I find the following statement by the Cardinal of Florence to be very instructive: “The transformation of Western societies into multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multi-religious societies is a fact and a future that inevitably awaits us.”
The transformation of Western societies is only “inevitable” because decision-makers at the highest level have decided not to avoid, stop, or prevent it. If it were not deemed expedient by the Powers That Be, then the transformation would never have been allowed to take place.

Crosses in Italian Cemetery Covered to Avoid Offence to Other Religions
The cemetery, which is located in Bologna in a town of around 7,000 people, has also installed motorised blackout curtains in a local chapel following renovations to hide Roman Catholic symbols during ceremonies involving other denominations, Il Giornale reports.
Following the reports of the coverings of the symbols, many have expressed criticism including Forza Italia (Forward Italy) deputy Galeazzo Bignami who denounced the move saying those looking not to offend were disrespecting Christian values and he added, “even more so the memory of our dead, hiding them behind ‘motorised tents’ in a cemetery to avoid offending other religions.”
“If the administrators are ashamed of our tradition and our culture, they should go and hide themselves and not just behind a motorised tent. If they are not able to bring respect for the living at least they have the decency to leave the dead alone and not involve them in foolishness,” he added. …
The Archbishop of Florence has announced he will be selling 86,000 square feet of property to a Muslim group in order for them to build a mosque in Sesto Fiorentino.
Cardinal of Florence, Giuseppe Betori, approved of the sale saying, “The transformation of Western societies into multi-ethnic, multicultural, and multi-religious societies is a fact and a future that inevitably awaits us.”
In the northern city of Bergamo, another Muslim association has spent nearly half a million euros on an old church, which they also plan to convert into a mosque.
