Leone Jacovacci documentary
A documentary about a black Italian boxer who discredited Benito Mussolini’s racist ideology by winning a European boxing title is making waves in Italy and abroad, reports Variety.

“The Duce’s Boxer” tells the story of Leone Jacovacci, an African Italian born in the Congo who won the 1928 European middleweight title by beating Mario Bosisio a white Italian boxer supported by the country’s Fascist leaders, in front of 40,000 fans in Rome’s National Stadium.

Mussolini, outraged, then ordered Jacovacci and his achievement erased from Italy’s history books.
