Banners pro and against Mussolini appear in Rome overnight.Rome police removed two banners featuring Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini from a footbridge near the Colosseum where they appeared on Thursday night, on the eve of the centenary of the March on Rome, the event that gave rise to the fascist regime in Italy.
The first banner bore the message "28-X-22 We know how it ends" with a giant upside-down photo of Mussolini, recalling the dictator's fate in Piazzale Loreto, Milan, in 1945.The image of Il Duce was subsequently turned upright and the banner replaced with another that read "100 years later the march continues".
Inaccettabili e vergognosi i manifesti abusivi per celebrare il centenario della marcia su Roma apparsi questa notte in alcune strade. Ho disposto la loro immediata rimozione. #Roma, medaglia d'oro al Valore Militare per la #Resistenza, è e sarà sempre antifascista.— Roberto Gualtieri (@gualtierieurope) October 27, 2022The city's mayor Roberto Gualtieri wrote on Twitter that the posters were "unacceptable and shameful" and stressed that Rome "is and always will be anti-fascist".
