COLLEPARDO, Italy — After masterminding Donald Trump's success, Steve Bannon turned his attention to building a far-right political movement in Europe. But a group of activists in a tiny village outside Rome are hoping to disrupt that effort.

Around 200 people marched Saturday in Collepardo, an hour and a half from the Italian capital, to protest Bannon's plans to create a training school for nationalists in the Trisulti Charterhouse, a former Carthusian monastery.

Trump's former adviser last year announced his intentions to turn the 800-year-old medieval abbey — previously inhabited by monks and a colony of feral cats — into an academy for the next wave of populist politicians.
