Here’s something you won’t see in the Swindon Advertiser.
Paolo di Canio has two permanent tributes to fascism tattooed on his body. His back is covered with the ‘fasces’ – the traditional symbol of Italian fascism – which Benito Mussolini used in his personal flag.
His second is a tribute to Mussolini himself. He has the word ‘Dux’ – Roman for ‘Duce’ (Mussolini’s self-styled title) – on his right bicep.
Next time someone tells you Di Canio isn’t really a fascist, you can tell them that Tommy told you otherwise.
