Inside Steve Bannon’s populist academy in Italy

Europe Editor and Presenter

It’s a pattern which is repeated across Europe: the rise of assertive populism, an invigorated far-right bent on rewriting the rules of old-style mainstream politics, picking up widespread support in the process.

Now into the mix arrives Steve Bannon, the darling of the alt-right, once a leading campaign strategist for Donald Trump and the man behind the conservative Breitbart News, who since leaving the White House has turned his attention to Europe.

We’ve been to Bannon’s latest project, an ultra-conservative academy he’s set up in a monastery outside Rome.
