Fascism and Mafia in Italy


Fascism and Mafia in Italy

Italians are usually not strong nationalists. It should be easy to talk to people about history and politics without provoking arguments. People will listen to your opinion in a polite way as long as you express yourself politely. Fascism is out of the mainstream of Italian politics. Despite this, avoid such topics. Some older people who lived under Benito Mussolini (the Fascist dictator who was killed by the Resistance) could easily get upset. There are also some young people who support fascist views and usually such people do not like to talk about it, so simply avoid the topic. April 25 in Italy is the "Liberation Day", the national celebration of freedom from Nazi-Fascist rule. Similarly, in the south it is probably wise not to talk about the Mafia and organized crime with people you don't know. You never know who might be involved in the industry.
