The great grandson of notorious Italian fascist dictator Benito Mussolini has been named in Lazio’s squad to play Hellas Verona today in Serie A.
Romano Floriani Mussolini is just 18 years old.
He is the third child of Alessandra Mussolini and Mauro Floriani.
Alessandra was previously a member of the European Parliament for Forza Italia, while another of Benito’s grandchildren, Rachele, is a city councillor in Rome.
Lazio has a long history of links with fascism, with the ultras famous for pro-fascist banners and chants.
Paulo di Canio got into hot water in his playing days with Lazio for doing the one-arm fascist salute to the ultras after scoring.Internet Explorer Channel Network
