how is it possible that the 37% of us forgot what happened just 80 years ago? | Italy

Audio recording by Lorenzo

Hello guys,I am Lorenzo, from Italy. I come from a small region in the North East of my country. It is called Friuli Venezia Giulia. It is a good place to live in:life and education are good, and people are clever and hard working. However, I feel that open-mindedness sometimes lacks. The odd thing is that we are geographically located at the crossroad of North and East of Europe, completely different cultures. I believe that this impression of mine found a confirmation in the result of the election that we had on the 4th of March. The right-wing group received the majority of the votes, the 37%.

I know that our country is having serious problems with immigration and economics, but I cannot conceive that politicians who have ideas that resembles pretty well Fascism could have been chosen by most Italians. In Italy we study a lot of History, so how is it possible that the 37% of us forgot what happened just 80 years ago? I have no competence to say such things. I haven’t followed all the election campaign, but I know what this party claims. Therefore my question is:how can such things happen?
