  • Description

    AN ALLEGEDLY PRO-FASCIST PROFESSOR AT ROME UNIVERSITY OFFERED HIS RESIGNATION TODAY (TUESDAY) AFTER A STRIKE THAT HAS PARTIALLY DISRUPTED ITALIAN ACADEMIC LIFE.

    PROFESSOR UGO PAPI, RECTOR OF THE UNIVERSITY, OFFERED HIS RESIGNATION TO THE UNIVERSITY BOARD, BUT WAS ASKED TO RECONSIDER. THE MATTER HAS NOW BEEN REFERRED TO THE ITALIAN MINISTER OF EDUCATION, SIGNOR GUI FOR A DECISION.

    THE STRIKE AT ROME UNIVERSITY FOLLOWED A WEEK OF VIOLENCE BETWEEN LEFT-WING AND NEO-FASCIST STUDENTS IN WHICH A 19-YEAR-OLD STUDENT, PAOLO ROSSI DIED.

    LEFT-WING STUDENTS HAD COMPLAINED THAT PROFESSOR PAPI WAS A PROMINENT FIGURE IN THE DAYS OF FASCIST RULE. THEY DEMANDED HIS DISMISSAL AND THE DISBANDMENT OF NEO-FASCIST ORGANISATIONS.

    THE STRIKE AT ROME UNIVERSITY WAS SUPPORTED BY PARTIAL STRIKES AT OTHER MAJOR ITALIAN UNIVERSITIES. ROME STUDENTS MOVED INTO LECTURE ROOMS AND OTHER PARTS OF THE UNIVERSITY.

    THEY BROUGHT IN LARGE STOCKS OF FOOD AND DRINK FOR THE 'STAY-IN' STRIKE.
