The Italian Committee for the Theatrical Review of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities did not approve the release of Inga in Italy. The reason for the denial, cited in the official documents, is: the immorality of its characters and the subject, and the numerous dirty scenes considered offensive to decency. Two years later, in 1971, the Movie Reviewing Commission, approved the projection of the movie, but rated it as VM18: not suitable for children under 18. In addition, the Committee imposed the removal of the following scenes: 1) the scene of the ritual of the Virgin (trial); 2) the scene in which Inga masturbates; 3) the scene in which Inga and the young man see each other for the third time and are in bed.[3]
