Example text

In an interview published this week in the conservative English newspaper, The Spectator, Berlusconi called the public magistrates ‘mentally disturbed and anthropologically different’ from normal people. In the same interview Berlusconi also defended Mussolini saying, ‘He never killed anyone,’ and, in reference to the mass expulsion of Jews at the end of the war, claimed that Mussolini had ‘just sent them on vacation,’ alluding to the now plush resort islands of Ponza and Maddalena where many Jews were imprisoned while awaiting trips to death camps.

Public chaos and violence trigger fear and insecurity among the populace; this lesson is being rekindled among the ashes of a political movement long discredited but never extinguished. International media accounts portrayed Genoa as an armed camp patrolled by a dizzying array of aggressive uniformed forces: military, paramilitary, and police.
