Like Mussolini, Clara ‘Claretta’ Petacci was shot in 1945 and her body hung upside down at a petrol station at piazzale Loretta in Milan. But with this difference: that her skirt was tied around her knees. To prevent her knickers showing, according to Giuseppe Genna in Grande madre rossa. Because she had taken them off, according to some reports. Because she had been violated, according to Giorgio Pisanò.
