In my blockquotes in org-mode, the fontification does not pick up on italics. I have looked at this question and answer that says it was fixed several years ago, but my issue persists.
I have tried using
describe-face to find the issue but it does not seem to contain any modifications that should affect or hide italics:
Face: org-quote (sample) (customize this face) Documentation: Face for #+BEGIN_QUOTE ... #+END_QUOTE blocks. Defined in ‘org-faces.el’.

Italics show fine in other text. Here is an example showing the same text italicized, inside and outside a block quote:
C-u C-x = on italicized text gives this:
