Do you have nicknames for Historical Figures.

Mussolini's mistress called him "Ben" in various letters. Right now people often call him "LVI" (Italian "HE" in roman capital letters), mostly as a joke.

Giuseppe Garibaldi may be called Beppe.

Victor Emmanuel III is "sciaboletta" (little sword).

Giulio Andreotti, former Italian PM, often nicknamed the "Divo" (double meaning: "Divine" but also "Celibrity").

Then you have all sort of derogatory nicknames, but I won't put them here.
