Mussolini is Back

A descendant of Italy’s Benito Mussolini is back in the European Parliament after ostensibly retiring from politics. Alessandra Mussolini, the granddaughter of Italian statesman and social reformer dubbed ‘the father of fascism’ Benito Mussolini, is once again a member of the European Parliament (MEP). Alessandra was one of the eight replacements for Italian MEPs who have taken up seats in the national parliament, the Chamber of Deputies.
