Di Canio meets Holocaust survivors in Rome

ROME, Feb 16 (Reuters) – Lazio’s Paolo Di Canio has defended his political views after meeting with Jewish survivors of Nazi death camps on Thursday.

The striker was condemned by Jewish groups in Italy after making fascist salutes at the end of Serie A matches against Livorno and Juventus in December.

In both cases the Italian Football League’s disciplinary committee punished him with a 10,000 euro ($11,860) fine and a one-match suspension.
