Venice, September 10 - Regional councillors from
the centre-left Democratic Party (PD) in the northern Veneto
region on Tuesday asked Governor Luca Zaia - a member of the
anti-immigrant Northern League - and his administration to snuff
out Fascist events and other initiatives that "offend values of
the Resistance and the Italian Constitution".
The motion filed by the PD petitions Venice's regional
administration "to take on all initiatives for impeding
demonstrations and initiatives on Veneto territory that, through
the use of symbols and flags of the former Fascist regime,
offend the values of the Resistance and the Italian
Constitution".
The PD councillors made particular reference to the 'Casa
Pound' (Pound House) holiday to take place at the rural town of
Revine Lago from September 12 to 15.
The social movement founded in 2003 by squatters in a
State-owned building in Rome now has thousands of members and is
associated with Italy's far-right wing.
The group's name comes from the esteemed poet Ezra Pound,
an American expatriate who supported Benito Mussolini's Fascist
regime (1925-1943) in Italy.
"CasaPound has often been rendered a protagonist of Fascist
apology and episodes of racial hatred and incitement of
xenophobia," the petition said.
"Precisely the Revine Lago territory was hit hard during
the Resistance: entire villages destroyed by fires caused by
Nazi-Fascist retaliation, dozens of partisans killed and
civilians captured and deported".
