(Redirected to National Vanguard (Italy) article)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Vanguard (Italian: Avanguardia Nazionale) is a name that has been used for at least two neo-fascist groups in Italy.

The original National Vanguard was an extra-parliamentary movement formed as a breakaway group from the Italian Social Movement (MSI) by Stefano Delle Chiaie in 1960. The Vanguard rejected the parliamentary route of the Social Movement, preferring instead to work outside the political system to subvert democracy and bring about a return to fascism. Members of the movement were frequently denounced as terrorists and it was claimed that Della Chiaie had links to bomb making concerns in Spain. The group also had close links with Ordine Nuovo and other extremist groups. Vincenzo Vinciguerra was a notorious member of the group.

A second group bearing this name was set up in 1970 by Adriano Tilgher, but this movement was outlawed by the Italian government, who saw it as an attempt to refound the Fascist Party.

Avanguardia Nazionale organized the assassination of italian magistrate Vittorio Occorsio, employing arms supplied by the CIA via its contacts in Franchist Spain. For the killing Pierluigi Concutelli is currently serving a life sentence in Italy.

Avanguardia Nazionale member Mario Ricci participated to the 1978 assassination of Argala, the etarra who had taken part, five years before, in the assassination of Franco's prime minister, Luis Carrero Blanco [1].

A neofascist magazine entitled Avanguardia continues to be published monthly. It may claim to be the official organ of the National Vanguard, although the movement remains illegal in Italy - the official movement to which Avanguardia is connected is the Comunità Politica di Avanguardia (Political Vanguard Community).
