Overview

On November 28, 2019, the Italian police raided the homes of 19 right-wing extremists in various parts of Italy seizing an incredible amount of weapons, including pistols, hunting rifles and crossbows. Earlier in July police had found a huge stash of weapons including an air-to-air missile that they linked to this group of far-right extremists openly pro-Nazi, xenophobic, anti-Semitic and calling themselves the "Partito Nazionalsocialista Italiano dei Lavoratori" - the Italian National Socialist Workers' Party. The group had set up a chat group for the military-style training of militants and made contact with other neo-Nazi groups outside Italy, including the Aryan White Machine and the Nova Ordem Social. The group had forged links with extremist groups abroad, including in Portugal, Britain and France, police said.

Among the items seized were Nazi paraphernalia, swastika wall decorations and posters, pictures of Adolf Hitler, and several flags. The raids seem to have stopped the short lived group's activities for the time being. The defense of fascism and efforts to revive fascist parties are criminal offences in Italy.
