HistoryEdit

 
Emblem of the National Socialist Party, according to www.fascismoeliberta.info.

Fascism and Freedom Movement was founded in 1989 as a political movement inside the Italian Social Movement, centered around Senator Giorgio Pisanò and his weekly Candido. Finally, it separated from the MSI on 25 July 1991. In 2009, it added the words National Socialist Party (NSP) to its original name. The movement has been sued several times for alleged reconstitution of the dissolved National Fascist Party. It refuses agreements and / or alliances with other neo-fascist parties, stressing categorically not to be classified as a right-wing party, and that similar parties do not sufficiently adhere to Fascist ideology. The party makes explicit reference to the ideals of the Italian Social Republic as corporatism and the nationalization of the economy. Their ideology is based on the thought of fascist leader Benito Mussolini, and has as its main objective the realization of Mussolini's strongly hierarchical corporate democracy based on social credit. The party is also in favor of a presidential republic, and expresses a strong sense of anti-Americanism and anti-Zionism.

It is the only recognised party in Italy with the inscription "Fascismo" on its logo. Overall, it is an ultranationalist party with tendencies towards the Third Position and anti-capitalism.
