Opera Nazionale Balilla (ONB) was an Italian Fascist youth organization, created through Mussolini's decree of April 3 1926. It was named after Balilla (Giovan Battista Perasso), a semi-legendary Genoese character who started the local revolt of 1746 against the Austrian Habsburg forces that occupied the city in the War of Succession.

Oh but the italians have been like that a long time haven't they? I have a mental image of the footballer Palo di Canio doing a Nazi salute after a football match with his face all contorted, I think the Germans have this problem too...oh don't forget the BNP in the UK!.. but don't worry, we will exterminate them all one day ;)
