Achille Starace Quote

Our so-called Society people, instead of going in for sport, persist in holding conversations in their drawing rooms, generally in a foreign tongue. They engage nurse maids, personal maids and governesses of all nationalities except Italian. They play poker and bridge with the accompanying drinks, certainly not Italian brands!


About disloyal people in Italian society. Quoted in "Activist on Society" - Time Magazine - August 5, 1935.
