Far-right social centre

CasaPound building in Rome

A far-right social centre is a space inspired by neo-fascist and Third Position ideas, typically in the 21st century.


In Italy, a social centre called Il Bartolo was squatted in Rome, and was burnt down after one year.[1] In 1998, Italian neo-fascists squatted in another building in Rome at Castrense 48 and called it PortAperta.[1] In 2002 neo-fascists squatted in a building and created social centre called CasaMontag.[2] In 2003 Italian neo-fascists squatted in a building in Rome and created the Foro 753 non-conforming centre.[3][4][5] In 2017 members of the far-right Forza Nuova squatted commercial premises in Rome[6] and created a food kitchen only for Italian nationals, in breach of the Constitution of Italy.[7]


In 2003, Italian neo-fascists squatted in a building on Via Napoleone III on the Esquiline Hill and founded the CasaPound (the Ezra Pound's home) social centre.[8] In June 2008 CasaPound constituted an "association of social promotion" and assumed the name CasaPound Italia.[9][10][11] Other CasaPound squats are in Latina (Lazio region) (legalised)[12][13] and Area 19 at via dei Monti della Farnesina 80 in Rome (evicted 2015).[14]


Social Bastion was a French neo-fascist political movement that used squatting as a tactic before being banned as a far-right organization in 2019 by the French Government.[15] Members of the student association GUD, squatted a building at 18 rue Port-du-Temps in Lyon, in May 2017. They planned it to help only poor French nationals.[16] The mayor of Lyon Gérard Collomb immediately condemned the occupation and pledged to evict it.[17] It was evicted by 100 police officers after two weeks.[18]

In 2018 local identitarians squatted house in Angers[19] and created social centre L’Alvarium.[20] In 2020 court ordered to evict it.[21][22]


In 1990 in the territories of former GDR there were located some far-right social centres. One of them was Weilingstraße 122. The centre played the role as a political HQ, a living community and party space for young nationalists.[23] In the 21st century german nationalists, inspired by CasaPound trying again to create their own social centres.[24] In 2019 political party The Third Path owned the building in Plauen[25] and created legal social centre P130.[26][27]


In Spain, Hogar Social Madrid, also known as Hogar Social Ramiro Ledesma (the Ramiro Ledesma Social Home) was squatted in the Tetuán district in Madrid in August 2014.[28] It was quickly evicted the next month and the group then occupied a building in Chamberí.[29] Some members of the group then split off and attacked the second building, which was also evicted.[30][31]


In 2014, during the Revolution of Dignity Ukrainian nationalists occupied a building in Kyiv city centre and used it as the headquarters of the Azov Battalion and later Cossack House (Ukrainian: Козацький Дім).[32]
