Hundreds of neo-fascists have been pictured throwing up Nazi salutes and chants as they gathered to commemorate the 1975 killing of one of their brethren in Milan.
Marching to commemorate the 1975 killing of Sergio Ramelli, the far-right group placed a placard at the scene of the incident following a march through the area. Police clashes followed as the far-right were seen engaging in fascist chants and salutes, the salutes being illegal in Italy in some circumstances.
Sergio Ramelli was a member of the Italian neo-fascist Youth Front who was attacked by a group from the Avant-Guard Workers, dying from his injuries in April of 1975. The assailants were tried and prosecuted between 1987 and 1990. The murder is commemorated every year by neo-fascist groups in Milian and Italy in general.
The shocking scenes in Milan come as racial tensions acrosss Italy reach boiling point, inspired in part by the rhetoric of Far-right deputy Prime Minister Matteo Salvini and The League, racial violence tripling between 2017 and 2018.
