In an interview with the newspaper Corriere della Sera, Meloni emphasizes today that “the flame that no one can see in the symbol of the Brothers of Italy has nothing to do with fascism, but it is the recognition of the course of a democratic right, in its history sovereign democracy of the country”.

It is recalled, however, that a series of analysts, in the past days, underlined that this flame symbolizes the fire which continues to burn, supposedly, in the tomb of the fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. The party that first used this symbol, after the Second World War, was the MSI “Italian Social Movement”, which was the political heir of the fascist party.
