Rome, January 29 - The granddaughter of Fascist
dictator Benito Mussolini stormed out of a television broadcast
when a fellow guest said he had no respect for her late
grandfather.
"Do I have to stay here and listen to this dickhead?" said
Alessandra Mussolini before exiting the studio.
Mussolini is an MP in the People of Freedom (PdL) party of
Silvio Berlusconi, who is leading the centre-right's campaign
for next month's Italian election.
The ex-premier caused an uproar Sunday when he said the
1938 anti-Jewish racial laws were the "worst fault" of the
Fascist dictator, adding that in many other ways Mussolini "did
well".
On Tuesday, his MP Mussolini was being interviewed by
Italian station La7 along with journalist Andrea Scanzi, who
denounced the late dictator for persecuting and killing Italian
anti-Fascists.
"I have respect for Piero Gobetti, for Giacomo Matteotti,
for all the people who were devastated by her grandfather, but
certainly not for her and her grandfather," he said.
Gobetti was an anti-Fascist intellectual and journalist who
was savagely beaten by Fascist thugs in 1925 and died the next
year in Paris.
Matteotti was a Socialist politician who on 30 May 1924
spoke out in parliament against Fascist electoral fraud and
denounced the violence used to gain votes. He was kidnapped and
killed by Fascists 11 days later.
Historians have debated how far Mussolini was involved in
the murder, which sparked widespread protests that Mussolini
eventually weathered, imposing stronger dictatorial rule.
