- Program Description
“The poverty of the country, the disillusionment of returning war veterans, a craven national government, and the threat of the industrial-military-clerical status quo, created a climate in postwar Italy for the rise of the Fascists and the emergence of their leader, Mussolini. A poseur on a grand scale, this ‘sawdust Caesar’ destroyed painfully built democratic institutions, created a police state, and ultimately, in alliance with Germany, threatened the whole of the civilized world. Retribution caught up with him and his own people hanged him like a herring in the public square of Milan and dissolved the Fascist state.”
