Ultra Football Club – level 1

18-05-18 07:00

Rome is famous. People know it for its history and culture. They also know it for its dangerous fanatics.
Ultra is a group that follows a football club. Organised gangs are in Ultra. They cause violence in Rome.

Ultra starts as people who like the military. Later on, they like neo-fascist ideas. They attack fans from other countries. They stab them with knives in their bottoms.

Many people think that Ultra is not very strong in Italy. However, it is still a problem.

Difficult words: dangerous fanatic (a person who likes something so much, he or she can cause fight because of it), violence (fighting and breaking of things), neo-fascist (when you believe extreme things about your country and your world and this is after WWII).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
