The Forza Nuova propaganda after the mass rampage in Rimini has been flashing on social media for days. The Boccasile manifesto spread in the Social Republic in the summer of 1944 after the brutal violence of the French occupation troops in Ciociaria. The French command granted the Moroccan right-wing troops to prey:
“From the many collected documents today we can state that there were a minimum of 20,000 cases of violence, a number that does not reflect the truth; several medical reports of the time reported that one-third of the women raped, whether ashamed or shameful, preferred not to denounce. By making an overall assessment of the violence committed by the “French Expeditionary Body”, which began its activities in Sicily and ended at the gates of Florence, we can safely state that there was a minimum of 60,000 raped women and 18,000 carnal violence. Maghreb soldiers on average drowned in groups of 2 or 3, but we also collected testimonies of women who were also raped by 100, 200 and 300 Maghrebs
This aggressive image has had great social success (thousands of likes, hundreds of shares) and has prompted the timely reaction of the Observatory on the new right that invokes the intervention of the judiciary:
This manifesto is a blatant incitement to racial hatred – commentators from the Observatory on New Rights – In the face of such obvious crime reports, immediate action by the judiciary and democratic institutions is to be expected. ” of Fiore’s party is clear: blowing on the fire, riding the fear by exploiting some news stories that have seen as protagonists – both as authors and as victims – of immigrants. From the rampage of Rimini to the damage of a Polish tourist: the perpetrators have not yet been identified but the denunciation of a couple of Legnano – attacked August 12 in the same area by a group of North African – it was enough to turn racial rage on the web. The last enemy, in a timely fashion, was Fr Massimo Biancalani, the Pistoia priest who was questioned in church for having taken some African refugees to the pool. Even their “new invaders”.
The story is told about the Republic by Paolo Berizzi, which turns the tragedy of women into a fascist propaganda campaign:
1944 is the year of disembarkation to Anzio and Neptune: the Second World War is in progress and, in the fascist vulgate, the soldiers who are occupying the Italian territory are responsible for rape and violence. On this fear is the Boccasile poster (also author of famous advertising: from the Ramazzotti granary to Formaggino Mio), which is spread in the areas of the Rsi not yet “taken” by the Anglo-Americans.
Unfortunately, the Moravian novel, De Sica’s film that brought Loren to the Oscar was not fancy.
