Do the Mussolini eyepoke.

This is one of my all time favourite images. Love the light and composition. So full of detail: the bequiffed fellow leaping in at rear left, the angles of the sticks, the variety of facial expressions. Was it posed or spontaneous? Considering the sheer amount of this type of material passed through my hands it's surprising I've only come across this image the once, in a 1970s partwork.
I've framed and displayed the image on and off over thirty-odd years, often in my kitchen or bathroom as a wake-me-up for the day at hand and the battles that continue. Sort of thing I'd wear on a t-shirt were I a t-shirt wearer. I'm such a partisan.
