Flo and Fascism (Eugenio Battaglia, Italy, 04/02/13 5:57 pm)

Answering the intriguing post of Alan Levine (1 April), I can state that I have conducted some research on Flo and her family. It turns out that her grandmother was among the young Fascist snipers organized by Pavolini, who defended the city of Florence down to the last man and woman. Flo's grandmother can clearly be recognized in the book La Pelle (The Skin) of Kurt Erich Suckert, nom de plume Curzio Malaparte, WWII volunteer, war reporter and famous writer. Politically he was very eclectic--a friend of Ciano, fascist, antifascist, involved with the US intelligence service and later a communist: The book La Pelle is dedicated to Colonel Henry H. Cumming of the University of Virginia, and to all good American comrades in arms from 1943 to 1945.

Malaparte was a very interesting figure; like Pavolini they were both great soldiers and writers.

JE comments: Flo and the Florentine connection--why are the most obvious things often the hardest to see?

Flo's world dictatorship, already 36 hours old, has generated very little discussion on WAISworld. I take this as a tacit approval of her sweeping reformist agenda.  Eugenio Battaglia has convincingly demonstrated the influence on Floism of Kurt Erich Suckert/Curzio Malaparte, whose bizarre life sounds like an April Fool's narrative. But in Malaparte's case, it's all true:

Malaparte briefly came up on WAIS several years ago.  Here's an Alain de Benoist post from 5 December 2006:
