Mr. Sebastiani (who is a most active Fascist) resigned from the Casa d’Italia due to the fact that he could not agree with the less militant policy of the present Italian Consul in regard to Fascism. Sebastiani is understood to have desired that the Marquis de Simone walk in the footsteps of his predecessor, Mr. de Brigidi, but this Marquis de Simone was apparently unwilling to do with the result that Sebastiani severed his connection with the Casa d’Italia and has threatened to withdraw his financial support from that organisation also.
