The episode took place on Monday 19 September at the funeral ceremony of a far-right exponent. The Lombard councilor for security, who recently took over from De Corato, did not shy away from the ritual
The context the funeral of Alberto Stabilini, militant of the Milanese far right with a past in the Youth Front. During the ceremony, which took place at the church in via Copernico on Monday 19 September, some participants bid farewell to the coffin with the Roman salute. Among them, as documented by ilfattoquotidiano.it
also the regional councilor for security Romano La Russa who did not escape the fascist ritual: the group shouts the name of the deceased and the word present! as he raises and extends his arm. La Russa, exponent of Brothers of Italy, who has just taken over the Lombard junta in place of Riccardo De Corato who has decided to run for Parliament. In an interview with Courier
he explained that, in his opinion, that gesture (in any case defined as inappropriate) would not be a Roman salute but a military salute with an outstretched arm. Not that every time one raises his arm he makes the Roman salute.
Pizzul (Pd): La Russa dissociates or we will ask for censorship
a very serious fact, not worthy of a democratic institution such as the Lombardy Region, therefore we ask the councilor La Russa to dissociate himself publicly. If this does not happen, we expect President Fontana to censor the gesture, without forcing us to file a motion in the Council. So the leader of the Democratic Party in the Regional Council, Fabio Pizzulafter the diffusion of the video in which some people are seen from behind, including Romano La Russa, who make the Roman salute while shouting present at the funeral of a member of the Milanese right wing.
