This is a quite useful article about Italian Deputy Minister & Interior Minister Matteo Salvini. Salvini, who like many fascists began his political career as a Stalinist, is leading the campaign against Syrian, Iraqi, & African refugees & against the Roma & Sinti communities in Italy. The article describes his role in forging links with European nationalists & fascists & with Steve Bannon to create an international network or movement of anti-immigration, anti-Muslim, racist & fascist ideologues.
