Two-and-a-half million people marched through the streets of Rome on October 25 in opposition to the policies and corruption of the right-wing government of Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. ...

Open fascists, including Benito Mussolini’s granddaughter, have a big influence within the People of Freedom (PdL) party, which is the majority party Berlusconi’s government.

The government is also in an alliance with the Northern League " a racist, far-right party, whose leader Umberto Bossi recently boasted that his party had “300,000 martyrs ready to come down from the mountains” in order to hunt down immigrants.

Cabinet ministers have also defended fascism, as has Berlusconi himself, recently stating, “We are the new Falange” (the party of Spanish fascist dictator Franco), according to an April 30 London Telegraph article.

Berlusconi made this statement after the election of the far-right Gianni Alemanno as the mayor of Rome, whose election was met by supporters with widespread chants of “Duce, Duce!”, as hundreds raised their hands in a fascist salute.

The Berlusconi government has engaged in widespread racist attacks. It has ordered the finger printing of the entire 150,000-strong population of Romani people in Italy, including children.
