Where can I get a bottle? I love to drink to the idea of slamming censorship.

interesting story, seems it was okay for the guy to sell Lenin wine but the minute he covered the right side, he was in trouble.

Maybe? Hmmm...

I would. What's the problem, it's just a name.

And like you said, the moment he went to the far 'right' he ran into trouble. As he said himself, ""It's strange that Stalin murdered 15 million people, but there is no fuss about the bottle. And for the labels with Hitler and Mussolini I ended up in court," said 41-year-old Lunardelli."

That doesn't make sense. At least he offers a selection from all sides of the spectrum.

What a strange maarketing scheme.

I wouldn't mind much drinking a bottle of that, well, maybe I would because I hate alchohol, but not because of the name. Just because it has the word Hitler stamped on it doesn't mean it's bad wine.

Another example of how advertising can influence people like that.

I read about this a while ago, and found it really disturbing. What a horrible thing for someone to use as a marketing scheme. Take the most awful dictator in recent history, and stamp his name to a bottle of wine to sell more and to get TONS of free advertising.

Frankly, I find the idea sick.

Let's be realistic, many people have used Hitler to sell their products.

Heck, the tv media makes money selling air time for commertials, which they execute under the banner of "news", otherwise known as the most sensationalized representation of any bad thing made worse, and some things made up.

(Long title I know)

It's like protesting the Anola Gay. It's historical, and if you think that the musseum is not making money on a plane that dropped the A-bomb.

The goal is to make money. If he succeeds while staying within decent guildlines, who cares.

It's really sad that in Germany everything related to Hitler and the Nazi regime is censored and there is a lot of history teaching for kids but in the end in other european countries people aren't taking it serious.

I actually love italy, the people and the landscape but I never accepted the kind of humor they have regarding WWII. Probably, if anybody in germany would dare to publish something like that the uneducated people of the world would scream at us again for being Nazis all over.

On the other hand I need to agree with KrazyJehtro but people should be careful to differ between products connected to hitler and glorification of him. A wine is for me something that shouldn't be marked with such a man.

Are Hitler stamps worth anything? I've had a bunch of them since I was a kid.
