Traini stood as a candidate for the party in a local ballot past year.

Police have discovered a copy of Adolf Hitler's memoir Mein Kampf in the home of a man who allegedly shot and wounded six people in Italy. Shortly afterwards, police said one man had been arrested.

Pamela Mastropietro's body was found dismembered and packed into two suitcases near Macerata. Police said one of the six victims was seriously hurt and needed surgery, but gave no details.

The 29-year-old Nigerian, identified only as Jennifer, told Italian daily newspaper La Stampa from her hospital bed she was "talking and laughing with three other people" when she was struck by the bullet.

Luca Traini took aim at his victims from the window of his auto, according to reports, as he cruised through Macerata, a city of 43,000 about 150 miles northeast of Rome, where a Nigerian man Innocent Oseghale, 29, was arrested in the horrific killing of 18-year-old Pamela Mastropientro, an Italian.

The suspect named as Luca Traini who has a neo-Nazi symbol tattooed above his eyebrow has been arrested.

Jennifer's boyfriend told La Repubblica they were waiting at a bus station when he saw a man pointing something at them from a black vehicle. And I heard a shot: "Boom".

Jennifer told La Repubblica that she arrived in Italy seven months ago and joined her boyfriend in Macerata.

"I have always been comfortable here".

"Shots fired in Macerata".

"The Italian people will know how to get together around the institutions and common values of the Republic". They called off the event after the shootings for fear of further racist attacks.

Matteo Salvini, head of the far-right anti-immigration Northern League party - an ally of Berlusconi's centre-right Forza Italia - on Saturday condemned the shooting spree but also said the "invasion of migrants" was at the root of a "social clash".

Berlusconi took a swipe at the European Union on Sunday for failing to share the burden of Italy's migrant arrivals, saying: "Today, Italy counts for nothing in Brussels and the world".

The shooting spree came amid a heated general electoral campaign in which anti-foreigner sentiment has become a key theme. Salvini distanced himself from Saturday's shooting, but has continued his hardline immigration stance.

Italy is the main landing point for Europe-bound sea migrants, while it has registered over 450,000 arrivals in 2015 to 2017, and no less than 40 per cent were granted some form of asylum protection.

Italy's interior minister Marco Minniti said the gunman had been motivated "by racial hatred" and had "a background of right-wing extremism with clear references to fascism and Nazism".
