In his latest book, Giampaolo Pansa brings his conflict against the Italian Resistance to a new level: in a very unrefined lombrosian analysis, communist partisans are always depicted as "ugly", "neurotics", even "badly-dressed", while the non-communist partisans (the good ones, in Pansa’s view) are commonly "good-looking", "generous", "handsome". The central thesis is unchanged: the italian communist party craved for the nazi retaliations, and deliberately tried to cause them, so the hatred could grow, pushing the country towards a revolution. Proof supplied? Zero. Documentary evidence shown? None. 422 pages, filled with "maybe", "it would appear", "someone tells another story", without a single real evidence brought to our attention.

Keywords: Fascism, Resistance, Giampaolo Pansa, Fables, Revisionism, Volante Rossa.
