RESULTS UPDATE Italy’s elections: huge surge for racist far right Lega as fascists grow on the streets
Fascist and far right parties across Europe are sending congratulations to Matteo Salvini, leader of the far right racist Lega, which has seen its vote surge in Italy’s general election while the centre left vote has collapsed and fascists gain renewed confidence on the streets.
Fascists are at the heart of protests against refugees in Italy that have already forced the evacuation of around 100 migrants from a town in the north of the country.
A new fascist revival is brewing in Italy, 70 years after the demise of Mussolini. Italy’s racist and formerly separatist Lega Nord is transforming itself into a national party – and hardening its politics with a new and dangerous tie-up with the fascist Casa Pound Italia.
Partisan Diary: A Woman’s Life in the Italian Resistance, by Ada Gobetti is a story of heroism, political courage and humanity. It is also a tale of fear, anguish and human emotion.
