Cash to name babies for Mussolini

Breaking News

The small Movimento Sociale-Fiamma Tricolore (MS-FT) party denies its gesture is racist and says the names Benito and Rachele are merely "nice".

The party also wants parents to buy cribs, clothes and food with the money.

The cash incentive is available in five areas of southern Italy and is designed to help the region's low birth rate.

Together the names Benito and Rachele mean only one thing to Italians - they signify their former dictator and his wife.
