Main Italian newspapers under attack by neo-fascist group

Repubblica and l'Espresso, two of the main Italian newspapers, were attacked by a small group of neo-fascists. This is the latest in a series of such attacks. It is high time to apply the law and ban neo-fascist groups across Europe.

Italian women have a plan to end gender-based violence

A notorious Italian feminists group is sick of hearing that violence against women is a private matter or a one-time mistake. To them, the phenomenon is deeply rooted in our culture. They are planning a global women's strike.

Weinstein debates are confusing judgement with law breaking

One of Harvey Weinstein's victims is Asia Argento, an Italian who has suffered unacceptable attacks of victim blaming in our country. But this level of discussion is incorrect: this is a matter of rights, not morals.

The anti-vaccination movement demonstrates alarming level of social distrust
