I thought it was clear why I was, if not upset, a bit annoyed: the inaccuracy of the estimate. If support for neo-Fascism has to be judged by the actual tourist flow in Predappio, I'm not really worried.
One reason why a German reporter might think - I suppose - the bottles were worth a headline (and of course a photo) is probably just the shock value to Germans
, not to Italians; because Germans have laws against Nazi symbols, as you know.
If neo-Nazis find some consolation for their sitting in the dumpster of history by getting drunk on "Hitler's wine", bully for them, as long as they don't get obnoxious-drunk. I won't be the one giving them the disappointment of informing them that their idol was a teetotaler...
