Rome, November 2 - Pino Rauti, former leader of
Italy's main postwar neo-Fascist party, the Italian Social
Movement, (MSI), died in Rome at 86 Friday.
Rauti, a diehard soldier in Benito Mussolini's puppet
regime of Salo', joined the MSI in 1946 and was its leader off
and on until 1987 when he was defeated by Gianfranco Fini who
gradually moved the party into mainstream politics as the
National Aliance.
Fini, now House Speaker, eventually became first an ally
and later a party colleague of ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi
before an acrimonious split two years ago.
Rauti, a rightist intellectual, was at various times linked
to extremist tendencies and even terrorism but the claims never
stuck.
His daughter is married to Rome Mayor Gianni Alemanno, a
leading member of Berlusconi's People of Freedom (PdL) party.
