A Fascist on the Field


Paolo Di Canio celebrates Lazio’s derby win with the Saluto Romano– the stiff-armed fascist salute.

Alessandra Mussolini, grand-daughter of the late dictator and herself a far-right politician, praised Di Canio’s actions.

“How nice that Roman salute was, it delighted me so much,” she said, “I shall write him a thank-you note”.
