A group of eight Hellas Verona ultras have been banned from stadiums for trying to bring in Hitler hats, while Roma threw out a supporter for racist abuse.
Police found the woolly hats during a standard search as the Verona fans were preparing to enter the Stadio Dall’Ara for the game against Bologna on January 19.
They all had the same design, namely a swoop of black to resemble Hitler’s hair, with his moustache replaced by the ‘Scala’ – ladder – symbol of the city of Verona.
