Ciao Livio

livio maitan

Veteran Italian socialist Livio Maitan has died aged 81.

He played an important role during difficult times, as an anti-fascist, and a revolutionary but an opponent of Stalinism and a militant of the Trotskyist Fourth International.

A founder of the Italian Communist Refoundation (Rifondazione), you can see the PRC poster for his funeral here (pdf) and read some words from PRC leader Bertinotti here.

It's true what they say about Italians. Even their lefties are more stylish than the rest of us!

81 - a long life, and all that. This is not an occasion to be ultra leftist about these matters.
