Only lies do, what does it mean to you that discussing historical fact is outlawed? This is proposterous, do historians have to fear that performing their academic duties of free research no matter what the findings are will land them in jail for 4 years if just maybe they do not agree with the official preapproved version of history. Truth will ALWAYS come out in the end if all freedom of speech is afforded to citizens of any country. Sometimes it takes longer than others but that is the nature of man's progress. Shame on you Italy for stifling free speach and academic freedom, shame!
