The Italian region where Mussolini was born has banned the sale of his memorabilia.

Anyone caught flogging Il Duce T shirts, cigarette lighters or other souvenirs popular with tourists in the Emilia Romagna region could face prosecution.

“It sends a strong message against the trivialisation of history and the evil represented by fascist totalitarianism,” Nadia Rossi of the country's Democratic Party told La Repubblica.

Why would anyone want to own a Mussolini T shirt?
