An Italian photographer has bravely captured life inside some of Europe’s fascist hate groups.
Paolo Marchetti pictured young fascist skinheads from the UK, Germany, Spain and Italy giving the Hitler salute at a Nazi rock concert, at anti-immigrant marches and at skinhead summer parties over the past decade.
One disturbing image showed hundreds of people at a Nazi rock concert in Rome in May, 2013.
Another saw a girl holding a neo-Nazi flag during a march against immigration in Milan.
A group known as the SPQR Skins was seen gathering at the ‘Prima Porta’ cemetery to commemorate a comrade who died a few years ago.
Other photos saw fascists training in home-made boxing rings and gathered for a start-of-summer party on the coast of Lazio in August 2010.
One image even shows a baby lying in a crib in a room filled with fascist flags and propaganda.
