Interview with El Confidencial – translated by and for FRN –  * Diego Fusaro is one of the most controversial intellectuals in Italy, since he occupies an ideological position that combines conservative and leftist positions. He is a Marxist, and his referents are Gramsci , Pasolini and Costanzo Preve , at the same time as anti-globalist and pro-sovereigntist, and that has led him to hold positions with which many Salvinists are not in disagreement.
