Mario Borghezio
Mr. Mario Borghezio is a European Member of Parliament for Lega Nord, an Italian right wing party which despises Rome and ridicules the Republican institutions; Mr. Borghezio in particular is known for his Islamophobic positions. When he is in the Eternal City, however, he enjoys browsing at an antique market in Piazza Borghese which specializes in old prints of Rome; for the occasion he does not wear the green pocket handkerchief which identifies the supremacist supporters of Lega Nord.
