1. FC readers will have heard of your CD 'Punto di non Ritorno' -
but this is just the latest release. Can you tell us a little of your
MM: I have written and played songs since I was 18, 20 years ago,
in those days there were concerts with a few thousand comrades attending,
nevertheless recordings were very basic and unprofessional. I must
admit "Punto di non Ritorno" is the only professional recording I
have ever done, and the fact that has sold 7,000 copies is confirmation
of the importance of concentrating on the technical quality also.
2. How well known is your music outside Italy?
MM: I am not aware. I don't think is very well known, possibly because
my songs are typically Italian folk songs very much existential and
based on the meaning of the lyric.
3. Our readers will have read all about the 'concerts' in Milan and
Rome last September, from the reviews section in the last issue of
FC. Can you tell us a little more about them and why you chose to
do them? Were they a serious venture or a way to poke fun at your
enemies 'back home'?
MM: I wanted to organise something different, I wanted to go (symbolically)
to Italy for two hours. The idea was that, despite my being in exile,
I could play with my band live via satellite on maxiscreen in two
important cities in Italy and thousand of comrades could have attended
a concert performed by someone actually wanted by the police. The
rest is known; over two thousand police were in Rome, creating a scenario
of urban warfare, and they also banned the video from being broadcast,
allowing only the sound. Some in the Italian press strongly criticised
the police and the way the matter was handled.
4. With the release of the CD 'Tributo a Janus' can you tell us about
the influence this band had on you and other Nationalist activists
MM: Janus were a rock band who meant a lot to our world music, I have
not personally been influenced as I am not a rock musician.
5. To go back to your last recording - 'Punto di non Ritorno'
you pleased with it? What feedback did you get?
MM: As I was saying, I was pleased with the level of technical quality
and with the sales which were unprecedented in Italy within our 'area'.
6. Do you have any plans for future recordings - either solo projects
or working alongside other Nationalists?
MM: In about two weeks I will begin recording my next album. It will
take several months, but I am planning a high standard of technical
7. Do you take your musical inspiration purely from Italian culture
or do you also look to other cultures?
MM: Yes I do, although all the members of my band are British, and
several people told me they could detect English sounds in my songs.
8. The Nationalist music scene has been dominated with the Skinhead
and heavier music for some time. With the rise of people like yourself
and others, do you see the rise of a new folk Nationalist style -
or is this just another branch of the Nationalist way to win new people?
MM: Yes I do see that, I believe that what finds appreciation, also
gives enthusiasm to others to do the same.
9. We've already touched on the fact that you can't go home to Italy
in the question about last year's 'concert'. Can you tell us why the
Italian authorities won't allow you home? Some will have read articles
in the gutter press about yourself and Roberto Fiore - would you like
to put the record straight here?
MM: Despite all the lies reported in the Italian and English press
about myself the simple truth is that I was convicted of 9 years imprisonment
for being part of a subversive association. This is not the only fact
of this period. In the 70's it was the natural development for a nationalist
who could not accept as a compromise what the democratic political
system offered. Most of the representatives of the system we opposed
are being jailed for corruption, but no credit has been given to the
nationalists who fought against them.
10. Now that you are forced to live outside Italy, has this brought
home the point that the Nationalist fight is a pan-European, indeed
MM: Yes it has, and this is the biggest acquisition from my being
11. Events in Italy seem to unfold at a rapid pace - the formation
of the liberal National Alliance of Fini, the rise of a strong and
traditional Nationalist movement in the MS Fiamma Tricolore and the
coming to government of the Communist-Freemason-Bankster coalition
'the Olive Tree'. Can you tell us a brief background to these events?
MM: As you've said the political power that prior to now was substantially
in the hands of the anti-nationalist and international banks, hidden
behind the socialists, is now also the official and political power.
The hegemony of those lobbies is striking and total. This obvious
disadvantage for the Italian people could cause their down fall by
opening the eyes of the Italian people.
12. Do you see any hope for the future of Italy?
MM: The only way out for the Italian people is through Fascism, returning
the economic sovereignty to the nation, the recreation of the workers'
guilds, and the restoration of the faith in our origins as well as
in our future.
13. Recently we ran a piece on the Social Republic of Italy (RSI:
1943 - 1945). Does this period of Italian history inspire you?
MM: The RSI is the clearest example of Fascist and national
Those 20 year-old heroes who did not compromise on anything; their
pride and love for their nation was of a far stronger importance then
anything else including their own lives. 8 di Settembre is the second
song in my album "Punto di non Ritorno" dedicated to the invaluable
inheritance that the RSI left us.
14. Any last words for our readers?
MM: I thank them for listening to my songs and I hope they will follow
my work, as I have plans to go on doing it.
