Two Jewish students and their teacher were savagely attacked by neo-Fascists while laying a wreath in commemoration of World War II resistance fighters. The assailants shouted anti-Semitic slogans while beating the Jewish youths. The nephew of the writer Carlo Levi was among those attacked. Only one of the assailants was arrested.

Recently the neo-Fascists have used memorial meetings dedicated to the resistance movements as occasions for creating disorder in a number of Italian towns and universities, The Federation of Jewish Youth has sent a protest over this latest incident to the authorities.
