In , a concordat with the Vatican was signed, ending decades of struggle between the Italian state and the Papacy that dated back to the takeover of the Papal States by the House of Savoy during the unification of Italy.

The Lateran treaties , by which the Italian state was at last recognized by the Roman Catholic Church, and the independence of Vatican City was recognized by the Italian state, were so much appreciated by the ecclesiastic hierarchy that Pope Pius XI acclaimed Mussolini as "the Man of Providence".

The treaty included a legal provision whereby the Italian government would protect the honor and dignity of the Pope by prosecuting offenders.

After , Mussolini, with his anti-Communist doctrines, convinced many Catholics to actively support him.

In foreign policy, Mussolini was pragmatic and opportunistic. At the center of his vision lay the dream to forge a new Roman Empire in Africa and the Balkans , vindicating the so-called " mutilated victory " of imposed by the "plutodemocracies" Britain and France that betrayed the Treaty of London and usurped the supposed "natural right" of Italy to achieve supremacy in the Mediterranean basin.

In the s, Italy's foreign policy was based on the traditional idea of Italy maintaining "equidistant" stance from all the major powers in order to exercise "determinant weight", which by whatever power Italy chose to align with would decisively change the balance of power in Europe, and the price of such an alignment would be support for Italian ambitions in Europe and Africa.

In his early years in power, Mussolini operated as a pragmatic statesman, trying to achieve some advantages, but never at the risk of war with Britain and France.

An exception was the bombardment and occupation of Corfu in , following an incident in which Italian military personnel charged by the League of Nations to settle a boundary dispute between Greece and Albania were assassinated by bandits; the nationality of the bandits remains unclear.

At the time of the Corfu incident, Mussolini was prepared to go to war with Britain, and only desperate pleading by the Italian Navy leadership, who argued that the Italian Navy was no match for the British Royal Navy, persuaded Mussolini to accept a diplomatic solution.

When the Austrian 'austro-fascist' Chancellor Engelbert Dollfuss with dictatorial power was assassinated on 25 July by National-Socialist supporters, Mussolini even threatened Germany with war in the event of a German invasion of Austria.

Mussolini for a period of time continued strictly opposing any German attempt to obtain Anschluss and promoted the ephemeral Stresa Front against Germany in Despite Mussolini's imprisonment for opposing the Italo-Turkish War in Africa as "nationalist delirium tremens " and "a miserable war of conquest", [26] after the Abyssinia Crisis of —, in the Second Italo—Ethiopian War Italy invaded Ethiopia following border incidents occasioned by Italian inclusions over the vaguely drawn border between Ethiopia and Italian Somaliland.

Historians are still divided about the reasons for the attack on Ethiopia in Some Italian historians such as Franco Catalano and Giorgio Rochat argue that the invasion was an act of social imperialism , contending that the Great Depression had badly damaged Mussolini's prestige, and that he needed a foreign war to distract public opinion.

Confident of having been given free hand by French Premier Pierre Laval , and certain that the British and French would be forgiving because of his opposition to Hitler's revisionism within the Stresa front, Mussolini received with disdain the League of Nations' economic sanctions imposed on Italy by initiative of London and Paris.

The international mood was now against colonialist expansion and Italy's actions were condemned. Furthermore, Italy was criticized for its use of mustard gas and phosgene against its enemies and also for its zero tolerance approach to enemy guerrillas, authorized by Mussolini.

Without a policy of ten eyes to one, we cannot heal this wound in good time". The sanctions against Italy were used by Mussolini as a pretext for an alliance with Germany.

On 11 July , an Austro-German treaty was signed under which Austria declared itself to be a "German state" whose foreign policy would always be aligned with Berlin, and allowed for pro-Nazis to enter the Austrian cabinet.

The Foreign Office understood that it was the Spanish Civil War that was pulling Rome and Berlin closer together, and believed if Mussolini could be persuaded to disengage from Spain, then he would return to the Allied camp.

The American historian Barry Sullivan wrote that both the British and the French very much wanted a rapprochement with Italy to undo the damage caused by the League of Nations sanctions, and that "Mussolini chose to ally with Hitler, rather than being forced…" [].

Reflecting the new pro-German foreign policy on 25 October , Mussolini agreed to form a Rome-Berlin Axis , sanctioned by a cooperation agreement with Nazi Germany and signed in Berlin.

Furthermore, the conquest of Ethiopia cost the lives of 12, Italians and another 4, to 5, Libyans, Eritreans, and Somalis fighting in Italian service.

From through , Mussolini provided huge amounts of military support to the Nationalists in the Spanish Civil War. This active intervention on the side of Franco further distanced Italy from France and Britain.

As a result, Mussolini's relationship with Adolf Hitler became closer, and he chose to accept the German annexation of Austria in , followed by the dismemberment of Czechoslovakia in In May , during Hitler's visit to Italy, Mussolini told the Führer that Italy and France were deadly enemies fighting on "opposite sides of the barricade" concerning the Spanish Civil War, and the Stresa Front was "dead and buried".

The Axis agreement with Germany was strengthened by signing the Pact of Steel on 22 May , that bound together Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany in a full military alliance.

By the late s, Mussolini's obsession with demography led him to conclude that Britain and France were finished as powers, and that it was Germany and Italy who were destined to rule Europe if for no other reason than their demographic strength.

Mussolini believed that France was a "weak and old" nation as the French weekly death rate exceeded the birthrate by 2,, and he had no interest in an alliance with France.

Such was the extent of Mussolini's belief that it was Italy's destino to rule the Mediterranean because of Italy's high birth rate that he neglected much of the serious planning and preparations necessary for a war with the Western powers.

Count Galeazzo Ciano , Mussolini's son-in-law and foreign minister, summed up the dictator's foreign policy objectives regarding France in an entry of his diary dated 8 November Djibouti would have to be ruled in common with France; "Tunisia, with a more or less similar regime; Corsica , Italian and never Frenchified and therefore under our direct control, the border at the river Var.

In January , the British prime minister, Neville Chamberlain , visited Rome, during which visit Mussolini learned that though Britain very much wanted better relations with Italy, and was prepared to make concessions, it would not sever all ties with France for the sake of an improved Anglo-Italian relationship.

The new course was not without its critics. On 21 March during a meeting of the Fascist Grand Council, Italo Balbo accused Mussolini of "licking Hitler's boots", blasted the Duce's pro-German foreign policy as leading Italy to disaster and noted that the "opening to Britain" still existed and it was not inevitable that Italy had to ally with Germany.

Italy defeated Albania within just five days, forcing king Zog to flee and setting up a period of Albania under Italy. Until May , the Axis had not been entirely official, but during that month the Pact of Steel treaty was signed outlining the " friendship and alliance" between Germany and Italy, signed by each of its foreign ministers.

Italy's King Victor Emanuel III was also wary of the pact, favoring the more traditional Italian allies like France, and fearful of the implications of an offensive military alliance, which in effect meant surrendering control over questions of war and peace to Hitler.

Hitler was intent on invading Poland, though Ciano warned this would likely lead to war with the Allies. Hitler dismissed Ciano's comment, predicting instead that Britain and the other Western countries would back down, and he suggested that Italy should invade Yugoslavia.

Most significantly, Victor Emmanuel had demanded neutrality in the dispute. In September , France swung to the opposite extreme, offering to discuss issues with Italy, but as the French were unwilling to discuss Corsica , Nice and Savoy , Mussolini did not answer.

Convinced that the war would soon be over, with a German victory looking likely at that point, Mussolini decided to enter the war on the Axis side.

Accordingly, Italy declared war on Britain and France on 10 June Mussolini regarded the war against Britain and France as a life-or-death struggle between opposing ideologies—fascism and the "plutocratic and reactionary democracies of the west"—describing the war as "the struggle of the fertile and young people against the sterile people moving to the sunset; it is the struggle between two centuries and two ideas", and as a "logical development of our Revolution".

Just eleven days later, France and Germany signed an armistice. Included in Italian-controlled France were most of Nice and other southeastern counties.

Advances were successful, but the Italians stopped at Sidi Barrani waiting for logistic supplies to catch up. After initial success, this backfired as the Greek counterattack proved relentless, resulting in Italy losing one-quarter of Albania.

Events in Africa had changed by early as Operation Compass had forced the Italians back into Libya , causing high losses in the Italian Army.

Despite putting up some resistance, they were overwhelmed at the Battle of Keren , and the Italian defense started to crumble with a final defeat in the Battle of Gondar.

When addressing the Italian public on the events, Mussolini was completely open about the situation, saying "We call bread bread and wine wine, and when the enemy wins a battle it is useless and ridiculous to seek, as the English do in their incomparable hypocrisy, to deny or diminish it.

General Mario Robotti , Commander of the Italian 11th division in Slovenia and Croatia, issued an order in line with a directive received from Mussolini in June "I would not be opposed to all sic Slovenes being imprisoned and replaced by Italians.

In other words, we should take steps to ensure that political and ethnic frontiers coincide". Mussolini first learned of Operation Barbarossa after the invasion of the Soviet Union had begun on 22 June , and was not asked by Hitler to involve himself.

A night telephone call from Ribbentrop. He is overjoyed about the Japanese attack on America. He is so happy about it that I am happy with him, though I am not too sure about the final advantages of what has happened.

One thing is now certain, that America will enter the conflict and that the conflict will be so long that she will be able to realize all her potential forces.

This morning I told this to the King who had been pleased about the event. He ended by admitting that, in the long run, I may be right. Mussolini was happy, too.

For a long time he has favored a definite clarification of relations between America and the Axis. By early , Italy's military position had become untenable.

After the defeat at El Alamein at the end of , the Axis troops had to retreat to where they were finally defeated in the Tunisia Campaign in early Italy suffered major setbacks on the Eastern Front as well.

The Allied invasion of Sicily brought the war to the nation's very doorstep. Factories all over Italy were brought to a virtual standstill because raw materials , such as coal and oil, were lacking.

Additionally, there was a chronic shortage of food, and what food was available was being sold at nearly confiscatory prices.

Mussolini's once-ubiquitous propaganda machine lost its grip on the people; a large number of Italians turned to Vatican Radio or Radio London for more accurate news coverage.

Discontent came to a head in March with a wave of labor strikes in the industrial north—the first large-scale strikes since The German presence in Italy had sharply turned public opinion against Mussolini; for example, when the Allies invaded Sicily, the majority of the public there welcomed them as liberators.

Earlier in April , Mussolini had persuaded Hitler to make a separate peace with Stalin and send German troops to the west to guard against an expected Allied invasion of Italy.

Mussolini feared that with the losses in Tunisia and North Africa, the next logical step for Allied General Dwight Eisenhower 's armies would be to come across the Mediterranean and attack the Italian peninsula.

Within a few days of the Allied landings on Sicily in July , it was obvious Mussolini's army was on the brink of collapse. This led Hitler to summon Mussolini to a meeting in Feltre on 19 July By this time, Mussolini was so shaken from stress that he could no longer stand Hitler's boasting.

His mood darkened further when that same day, the Allies bombed Rome —the first time that city had ever been the target of enemy bombing.

By this point, some prominent members of Mussolini's government had turned against him. Among them were Grandi and Ciano.

Several of his colleagues were close to revolt, and Mussolini was forced to summon the Grand Council on 24 July This was the first time the body had met since the start of the war.

When he announced that the Germans were thinking of evacuating the south, Grandi launched a blistering attack on him. This motion carried by a 19—8 margin.

He did, however, ask Grandi to consider the possibility that this motion would spell the end of Fascism. Despite this sharp rebuke, Mussolini showed up for work the next day as usual.

He allegedly viewed the Grand Council as merely an advisory body and did not think the vote would have any substantive effect.

When Mussolini tried to tell the king about the meeting, Victor Emmanuel cut him off and formally dismissed him from office, replacing him with Marshal Pietro Badoglio.

People rejoiced because they believed that the end of Mussolini also meant the end of the war. In an effort to conceal his location from the Germans, Mussolini was moved around before being imprisoned at Campo Imperatore , a mountain resort in Abruzzo where he was completely isolated.

Badoglio kept up the appearance of loyalty to Germany, and announced that Italy would continue fighting on the side of the Axis.

However, he dissolved the Fascist Party two days after taking over and began negotiating an Armistice with the Allies, which was signed on 3 September Its announcement five days later threw Italy into chaos; German troops rushed in to take over Italy in Operation Achse.

The Badoglio government held a political truce with the leftist partisans for the sake of Italy and to rid the land of the Nazis.

Only two months after Mussolini had been dismissed and arrested, he was rescued from his prison at the Hotel Campo Imperatore in the Gran Sasso raid on 12 September by a special Fallschirmjäger paratroopers unit and Waffen-SS commandos led by Major Otto-Harald Mors ; Otto Skorzeny was also present.

Three days following his rescue in the Gran Sasso raid, Mussolini was taken to Germany for a meeting with Hitler in Rastenburg at his East Prussian headquarters.

Despite public professions of support, Hitler was clearly shocked by Mussolini's disheveled and haggard appearance as well as his unwillingness to go after the men in Rome who overthrew him.

Mussolini's new regime faced numerous territorial losses: in addition to losing the Italian lands held by the Allies and Badoglio's government, the provinces of Bolzano , Belluno and Trento were placed under German administration in the Operational Zone of the Alpine Foothills , while the provinces of Udine , Gorizia , Trieste , Pola now Pula , Fiume now Rijeka , and Ljubljana Lubiana in Italian were incorporated into the German Operational Zone of the Adriatic Littoral.

In addition, the German army occupied the Dalmatian provinces of Split Spalato and Kotor Cattaro , which were subsequently annexed by the Croatian fascist regime.

I am not here to renounce even a square meter of state territory. We will go back to war for this. And we will rebel against anyone for this.

Where the Italian flag flew, the Italian flag will return. And where it has not been lowered, now that I am here, no one will have it lowered.

I have said these things to the Führer. Although he insisted in public that he was in full control, he knew that he was merely a puppet ruler under the protection of his German liberators—for all intents and purposes, the Gauleiter of Lombardy.

He told one of his colleagues that being sent to a concentration camp was preferable to his puppet status. One of those executed was his son-in-law, Galeazzo Ciano.

As head of state and Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Italian Social Republic, Mussolini used much of his time to write his memoirs.

Along with his autobiographical writings of , these writings would be combined and published by Da Capo Press as My Rise and Fall.

In an interview in January by Madeleine Mollier, a few months before he was captured and executed by Italian anti-fascist partisans, he stated flatly: "Seven years ago, I was an interesting person.

Now, I am little more than a corpse. Yes, madam, I am finished. My star has fallen. I have no fight left in me.

I work and I try, yet know that all is but a farce I await the end of the tragedy and—strangely detached from everything—I do not feel any more an actor.

I feel I am the last of spectators. Mussolini and his mistress Clara Petacci set out for Switzerland, intending to board a plane and escape to Spain.

During this time, Petacci's brother posed as a Spanish consul. They spent their last night in the house of the De Maria family. The next day, Mussolini and Petacci were both summarily shot, along with most of the members of their man train, primarily ministers and officials of the Italian Social Republic.

The shootings took place in the small village of Giulino di Mezzegra and were conducted by a partisan leader who used the nom de guerre Colonnello Valerio.

His real identity is unknown, but conventionally he is thought to have been Walter Audisio , who always claimed to have carried out the execution, though another partisan controversially alleged that Colonnello Valerio was Luigi Longo , subsequently a leading communist politician in post-war Italy.

The RSI only survived for another four days before Mussolini's defence minister, Rodolfo Graziani —the lone Italian marshal who remained loyal to Fascism after —surrendered its remains on 1 May.

On 29 April , the bodies of Mussolini, Petacci, and the other executed Fascists were loaded into a van and moved south to Milan. The piazza had been renamed "Piazza Quindici Martiri" Fifteen Martyrs' Square in honor of fifteen anti-Fascists recently executed there.

After being kicked and spat upon, the bodies were hung upside down from the roof of an Esso gas station. This was done both to discourage any Fascists from continuing the fight, and as an act of revenge for the hanging of many partisans in the same place by Axis authorities.

The corpse of the deposed leader was subject to ridicule and abuse. Fascist loyalist Achille Starace was captured and sentenced to death and then taken to the Piazzale Loreto and shown the body of Mussolini.

Starace, who once said of Mussolini "He is a god," [] saluted what was left of his leader just before he was shot.

The body of Starace was subsequently hung up next to that of Mussolini. After his death and the display of his corpse in Milan, Mussolini was buried in an unmarked grave in the Musocco cemetery, to the north of the city.

On Easter Sunday , his body was located and dug up by Domenico Leccisi and two other neo-Fascists. On the loose for months—and a cause of great anxiety to the new Italian democracy—Mussolini's body was finally "recaptured" in August, hidden in a small trunk at the Certosa di Pavia , just outside Milan.

Two Fransciscan brothers were subsequently charged with concealing the corpse, though it was discovered on further investigation that it had been constantly on the move.

Unsure what to do, the authorities held the remains in a kind of political limbo for ten years, before agreeing to allow them to be re-interred at Predappio in Romagna , his birthplace.

Adone Zoli , the then-current prime minister, contacted Donna Rachele , the dictator's widow, to tell her he was returning the remains, as he needed the support of the far-right in parliament, including Leccisi himself.

In Predappio, the dictator was buried in a crypt the only posthumous honor granted to Mussolini. His tomb is flanked by marble fasces , and a large idealized marble bust of him is above the tomb.

Mussolini's first wife was Ida Dalser , whom he married in Trento in The couple had a son the following year and named him Benito Albino Mussolini.

In December , Mussolini married Rachele Guidi , who had been his mistress since Due to his upcoming political ascendency, the information about his first marriage was suppressed, and both his first wife and son were later persecuted.

Mussolini had several mistresses, among them Margherita Sarfatti and his final companion, Clara Petacci. Mussolini had many brief sexual encounters with female supporters, as reported by his biographer Nicholas Farrell.

Imprisonment may have been the cause of Mussolini's claustrophobia. In addition to his native Italian, Mussolini spoke English, accented but fluent French and questionable German his sense of pride meant he did not use a German interpreter.

This was notable at the Munich Conference, as no other national leader spoke anything other than their native language; Mussolini was described as effectively being the "chief interpreter" at the Conference.

Mussolini was raised by a devoutly Catholic mother [] and an anti-clerical father. His father never attended. Mussolini became anti-clerical like his father.

As a young man, he "proclaimed himself to be an atheist [] and several times tried to shock an audience by calling on God to strike him dead.

He considered religion a disease of the psyche, and accused Christianity of promoting resignation and cowardice.

Mussolini was an admirer of Friedrich Nietzsche. According to Denis Mack Smith , "In Nietzsche he found justification for his crusade against the Christian virtues of humility, resignation, charity, and goodness.

Mussolini made vitriolic attacks against Christianity and the Catholic Church, which he accompanied with provocative remarks about the consecrated host, and about a love affair between Christ and Mary Magdalene.

He denounced socialists who were tolerant of religion, or who had their children baptized, and called for socialists who accepted religious marriage to be expelled from the party.

He denounced the Catholic Church for "its authoritarianism and refusal to allow freedom of thought Despite making such attacks, Mussolini tried to win popular support by appeasing the Catholic majority in Italy.

In , Mussolini saw that three of his children were given communion. In , he had a priest perform a religious marriage ceremony for himself and his wife Rachele, whom he had married in a civil ceremony 10 years earlier.

After this conciliation, he claimed the Church was subordinate to the State, and "referred to Catholicism as, in origin, a minor sect that had spread beyond Palestine only because grafted onto the organization of the Roman empire.

Mussolini publicly reconciled with the Pope Pius XI in , but "took care to exclude from the newspapers any photography of himself kneeling or showing deference to the Pope.

In Mussolini began reasserting his anti-clericalism. He would sometimes refer to himself as an "outright disbeliever," and once told his cabinet that "Islam was perhaps a more effective religion than Christianity" and that the "papacy was a malignant tumor in the body of Italy and must 'be rooted out once and for all', because there was no room in Rome for both the Pope and himself.

After his fall from power in , Mussolini began speaking "more about God and the obligations of conscience", although "he still had little use for the priests and sacraments of the Church".

Although Mussolini had initially disregarded biological racism, he was a firm believer in national traits and made several generalizations about the Jews.

Nevertheless, Mussolini considered Italian Jews to be Italians. Mussolini's antisemitic remarks in the late s and early s were more suited to the moment rather than a sincere belief in them.

Mussolini blamed the Russian Revolution of on "Jewish vengeance" against Christianity with the remark "Race does not betray race Bolshevism is being defended by the international plutocracy.

That is the real truth". Yet, within a few weeks, he contradicted himself with the remark "Bolshevism is not, as people believe, a Jewish phenomenon.

The truth is that Bolshevism is leading to the utter ruin of the Jews of Eastern Europe". In the early s, Mussolini stated that Fascism would never raise a " Jewish Question " and in an article he wrote he stated "Italy knows no antisemitism and we believe that it will never know it," and then elaborated, "let us hope that Italian Jews will continue to be sensible enough so as not to give rise to antisemitism in the only country where it has never existed.

The relationship between Mussolini and Adolf Hitler was a contentious one early on. While Hitler cited Mussolini as an influence and privately expressed great admiration for him, [] Mussolini had little regard for Hitler, especially after the Nazis had assassinated his friend and ally, Engelbert Dollfuss , the Austrofascist dictator of Austria in With the assassination of Dollfuss, Mussolini attempted to distance himself from Hitler by rejecting much of the racialism particularly Nordicism and Germanicism and antisemitism espoused by the German radical.

Mussolini during this period rejected biological racism, at least in the Nazi sense, and instead emphasized " Italianizing " the parts of the Italian Empire he had desired to build.

When discussing the Nazi decree that the German people must carry a passport with either Aryan or Jewish racial affiliation marked on it, in , Mussolini wondered how they would designate membership in the "Germanic race":.

But which race? Does there exist a German race? Has it ever existed? Will it ever exist? Reality, myth, or hoax of the theorists?

Ah well, we respond, a Germanic race does not exist. Various movements. We repeat. Does not exist. We don't say so.

Scientists say so. Hitler says so. When German-Jewish journalist Emil Ludwig asked about his views on race in , Mussolini exclaimed:.

It is a feeling, not a reality: ninety-five percent, at least, is a feeling. Nothing will ever make me believe that biologically pure races can be shown to exist today.

Amusingly enough, not one of those who have proclaimed the "nobility" of the Teutonic race was himself a Teuton. In a speech given in Bari in , he reiterated his attitude towards the German ideology of Master race :.

Thirty centuries of history allow us to look with supreme pity on certain doctrines which are preached beyond the Alps by the descendants of those who were illiterate when Rome had Caesar , Virgil and Augustus.

Though Italian Fascism varied its official positions on race from the s to , ideologically Italian Fascism did not originally discriminate against the Italian-Jewish community: Mussolini recognised that a small contingent had lived there "since the days of the Kings of Rome " and should "remain undisturbed".

By mid, the enormous influence Hitler now had over Mussolini became clear with the introduction of the Manifesto of Race.

The Manifesto, which was closely modeled on the Nazi Nuremberg Laws , [91] stripped Jews of their Italian citizenship and with it any position in the government or professions.

The racial laws declared Italians to be part of the Aryan race and forbid sexual relations and marriages between Italians and those considered to be of an "inferior race", chiefly Jews and Africans.

They could not own land over a certain value, serve in the armed forces, employ non-Jewish domestics, or belong to the Fascist party.

Their employment in banks, insurance companies, and public schools was forbidden. Even after the introduction of the racial laws , Mussolini continued to make contradictory statements about race.

I don't believe a bit in the stupid anti-Semitic theory. I am carrying out my policy entirely for political reasons. Mussolini and the Italian Army in occupied regions openly opposed German efforts to deport Italian Jews to Nazi concentration camps.

These squads spread terror among Jews and anti-Fascists for a year and a half. In the power vacuum that existed during the first three or four months of the occupation, the semi-autonomous bands were virtually uncontrollable.

Many were linked to individual high-ranking Fascist politicians. Informers betrayed their neighbors, squadristi seized Jews and delivered them to the German SS, and Italian journalists seemed to compete in the virulence of their anti-Semitic diatribes.

It has been widely speculated that Mussolini adopted the Manifesto of Race in for merely tactical reasons, to strengthen Italy's relations with Germany.

Mussolini and the Italian military did not consistently apply the laws adopted in the Manifesto of Race. The Racial Manifesto could have been avoided.

It dealt with the scientific abstruseness of a few teachers and journalists, a conscientious German essay translated into bad Italian.

It is far from what I have said, written and signed on the subject. I suggest that you consult the old issues of Il Popolo d'Italia. For this reason I am far from accepting Alfred Rosenberg 's myth.

Mussolini also reached out to the Muslims in his empire and in the predominantly Arab countries of the Middle East. A third son, Bruno, was killed in an air accident while flying a Piaggio P.

His oldest son, Benito Albino Mussolini , from his marriage with Ida Dalser, was ordered to stop declaring that Mussolini was his father and in forcibly committed to an asylum in Milan, where he was murdered on 26 August after repeated coma-inducing injections.

Although the National Fascist Party was outlawed by the postwar Constitution of Italy , a number of successor neo-fascist parties emerged to carry on its legacy.

Historically, the largest neo-fascist party was the Italian Social Movement Movimento Sociale Italiano , which disbanded in and was replaced by National Alliance , a conservative party that distanced itself from Fascism its founder, former foreign minister Gianfranco Fini , declared during an official visit to Israel that Fascism was "an absolute evil".

Benito Mussolini, with a surfeit of bad history decaying in his imagination, could not see the plain realities before him. Like most of his generation he dramatised human affairs in incurably geographical patches, and like most of the masterful men of his time his belief in his power to mould the life about him carried him beyond sanity.

From the beginning his was an ill-balanced temperament; he would be blatant at one moment, and weeping at another.

He beat at the knees of Mother Reality like an unteachable child. He wanted war and conquest, triumph over definable enemies, fierce alliances, and unforgettable antagonisms.

He wanted glory. He died, as his last words testify, completely unaware of the fact that the rational treatment of human affairs does not admit of that bilaterality which the traditions of warfare require.

He persuaded himself and he persuaded great multitudes of people that two great systems of ideas faced each other in the world, "Leftism" and "Rightism", and that he and his associated Dictators embodied the latter.

He did contrive finally to impose the illusion of a definitive World War upon great masses of people.

Hitler \u0026 Mussolini Meet in the Alps (1940) - War Archives

In other words, we should take steps to ensure that political and ethnic frontiers coincide". Mussolini first learned of Operation Barbarossa after the invasion of the Soviet Union had begun on 22 June , and was not asked by Hitler to involve himself.

A night telephone call from Ribbentrop. He is overjoyed about the Japanese attack on America. He is so happy about it that I am happy with him, though I am not too sure about the final advantages of what has happened.

One thing is now certain, that America will enter the conflict and that the conflict will be so long that she will be able to realize all her potential forces.

This morning I told this to the King who had been pleased about the event. He ended by admitting that, in the long run, I may be right. Mussolini was happy, too.

For a long time he has favored a definite clarification of relations between America and the Axis. By early , Italy's military position had become untenable.

After the defeat at El Alamein at the end of , the Axis troops had to retreat to where they were finally defeated in the Tunisia Campaign in early Italy suffered major setbacks on the Eastern Front as well.

The Allied invasion of Sicily brought the war to the nation's very doorstep. Factories all over Italy were brought to a virtual standstill because raw materials , such as coal and oil, were lacking.

Additionally, there was a chronic shortage of food, and what food was available was being sold at nearly confiscatory prices.

Mussolini's once-ubiquitous propaganda machine lost its grip on the people; a large number of Italians turned to Vatican Radio or Radio London for more accurate news coverage.

Discontent came to a head in March with a wave of labor strikes in the industrial north—the first large-scale strikes since The German presence in Italy had sharply turned public opinion against Mussolini; for example, when the Allies invaded Sicily, the majority of the public there welcomed them as liberators.

Earlier in April , Mussolini had persuaded Hitler to make a separate peace with Stalin and send German troops to the west to guard against an expected Allied invasion of Italy.

Mussolini feared that with the losses in Tunisia and North Africa, the next logical step for Allied General Dwight Eisenhower 's armies would be to come across the Mediterranean and attack the Italian peninsula.

Within a few days of the Allied landings on Sicily in July , it was obvious Mussolini's army was on the brink of collapse.

This led Hitler to summon Mussolini to a meeting in Feltre on 19 July By this time, Mussolini was so shaken from stress that he could no longer stand Hitler's boasting.

His mood darkened further when that same day, the Allies bombed Rome —the first time that city had ever been the target of enemy bombing.

By this point, some prominent members of Mussolini's government had turned against him. Among them were Grandi and Ciano. Several of his colleagues were close to revolt, and Mussolini was forced to summon the Grand Council on 24 July This was the first time the body had met since the start of the war.

When he announced that the Germans were thinking of evacuating the south, Grandi launched a blistering attack on him.

This motion carried by a 19—8 margin. He did, however, ask Grandi to consider the possibility that this motion would spell the end of Fascism.

Despite this sharp rebuke, Mussolini showed up for work the next day as usual. He allegedly viewed the Grand Council as merely an advisory body and did not think the vote would have any substantive effect.

When Mussolini tried to tell the king about the meeting, Victor Emmanuel cut him off and formally dismissed him from office, replacing him with Marshal Pietro Badoglio.

People rejoiced because they believed that the end of Mussolini also meant the end of the war. In an effort to conceal his location from the Germans, Mussolini was moved around before being imprisoned at Campo Imperatore , a mountain resort in Abruzzo where he was completely isolated.

Badoglio kept up the appearance of loyalty to Germany, and announced that Italy would continue fighting on the side of the Axis.

However, he dissolved the Fascist Party two days after taking over and began negotiating an Armistice with the Allies, which was signed on 3 September Its announcement five days later threw Italy into chaos; German troops rushed in to take over Italy in Operation Achse.

The Badoglio government held a political truce with the leftist partisans for the sake of Italy and to rid the land of the Nazis.

Only two months after Mussolini had been dismissed and arrested, he was rescued from his prison at the Hotel Campo Imperatore in the Gran Sasso raid on 12 September by a special Fallschirmjäger paratroopers unit and Waffen-SS commandos led by Major Otto-Harald Mors ; Otto Skorzeny was also present.

Three days following his rescue in the Gran Sasso raid, Mussolini was taken to Germany for a meeting with Hitler in Rastenburg at his East Prussian headquarters.

Despite public professions of support, Hitler was clearly shocked by Mussolini's disheveled and haggard appearance as well as his unwillingness to go after the men in Rome who overthrew him.

Mussolini's new regime faced numerous territorial losses: in addition to losing the Italian lands held by the Allies and Badoglio's government, the provinces of Bolzano , Belluno and Trento were placed under German administration in the Operational Zone of the Alpine Foothills , while the provinces of Udine , Gorizia , Trieste , Pola now Pula , Fiume now Rijeka , and Ljubljana Lubiana in Italian were incorporated into the German Operational Zone of the Adriatic Littoral.

In addition, the German army occupied the Dalmatian provinces of Split Spalato and Kotor Cattaro , which were subsequently annexed by the Croatian fascist regime.

I am not here to renounce even a square meter of state territory. We will go back to war for this. And we will rebel against anyone for this.

Where the Italian flag flew, the Italian flag will return. And where it has not been lowered, now that I am here, no one will have it lowered.

I have said these things to the Führer. Although he insisted in public that he was in full control, he knew that he was merely a puppet ruler under the protection of his German liberators—for all intents and purposes, the Gauleiter of Lombardy.

He told one of his colleagues that being sent to a concentration camp was preferable to his puppet status. One of those executed was his son-in-law, Galeazzo Ciano.

As head of state and Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Italian Social Republic, Mussolini used much of his time to write his memoirs.

Along with his autobiographical writings of , these writings would be combined and published by Da Capo Press as My Rise and Fall. In an interview in January by Madeleine Mollier, a few months before he was captured and executed by Italian anti-fascist partisans, he stated flatly: "Seven years ago, I was an interesting person.

Now, I am little more than a corpse. Yes, madam, I am finished. My star has fallen. I have no fight left in me. I work and I try, yet know that all is but a farce I await the end of the tragedy and—strangely detached from everything—I do not feel any more an actor.

I feel I am the last of spectators. Mussolini and his mistress Clara Petacci set out for Switzerland, intending to board a plane and escape to Spain.

During this time, Petacci's brother posed as a Spanish consul. They spent their last night in the house of the De Maria family.

The next day, Mussolini and Petacci were both summarily shot, along with most of the members of their man train, primarily ministers and officials of the Italian Social Republic.

The shootings took place in the small village of Giulino di Mezzegra and were conducted by a partisan leader who used the nom de guerre Colonnello Valerio.

His real identity is unknown, but conventionally he is thought to have been Walter Audisio , who always claimed to have carried out the execution, though another partisan controversially alleged that Colonnello Valerio was Luigi Longo , subsequently a leading communist politician in post-war Italy.

The RSI only survived for another four days before Mussolini's defence minister, Rodolfo Graziani —the lone Italian marshal who remained loyal to Fascism after —surrendered its remains on 1 May.

On 29 April , the bodies of Mussolini, Petacci, and the other executed Fascists were loaded into a van and moved south to Milan.

The piazza had been renamed "Piazza Quindici Martiri" Fifteen Martyrs' Square in honor of fifteen anti-Fascists recently executed there.

After being kicked and spat upon, the bodies were hung upside down from the roof of an Esso gas station. This was done both to discourage any Fascists from continuing the fight, and as an act of revenge for the hanging of many partisans in the same place by Axis authorities.

The corpse of the deposed leader was subject to ridicule and abuse. Fascist loyalist Achille Starace was captured and sentenced to death and then taken to the Piazzale Loreto and shown the body of Mussolini.

Starace, who once said of Mussolini "He is a god," [] saluted what was left of his leader just before he was shot.

The body of Starace was subsequently hung up next to that of Mussolini. After his death and the display of his corpse in Milan, Mussolini was buried in an unmarked grave in the Musocco cemetery, to the north of the city.

On Easter Sunday , his body was located and dug up by Domenico Leccisi and two other neo-Fascists. On the loose for months—and a cause of great anxiety to the new Italian democracy—Mussolini's body was finally "recaptured" in August, hidden in a small trunk at the Certosa di Pavia , just outside Milan.

Two Fransciscan brothers were subsequently charged with concealing the corpse, though it was discovered on further investigation that it had been constantly on the move.

Unsure what to do, the authorities held the remains in a kind of political limbo for ten years, before agreeing to allow them to be re-interred at Predappio in Romagna , his birthplace.

Adone Zoli , the then-current prime minister, contacted Donna Rachele , the dictator's widow, to tell her he was returning the remains, as he needed the support of the far-right in parliament, including Leccisi himself.

In Predappio, the dictator was buried in a crypt the only posthumous honor granted to Mussolini. His tomb is flanked by marble fasces , and a large idealized marble bust of him is above the tomb.

Mussolini's first wife was Ida Dalser , whom he married in Trento in The couple had a son the following year and named him Benito Albino Mussolini.

In December , Mussolini married Rachele Guidi , who had been his mistress since Due to his upcoming political ascendency, the information about his first marriage was suppressed, and both his first wife and son were later persecuted.

Mussolini had several mistresses, among them Margherita Sarfatti and his final companion, Clara Petacci.

Mussolini had many brief sexual encounters with female supporters, as reported by his biographer Nicholas Farrell.

Imprisonment may have been the cause of Mussolini's claustrophobia. In addition to his native Italian, Mussolini spoke English, accented but fluent French and questionable German his sense of pride meant he did not use a German interpreter.

This was notable at the Munich Conference, as no other national leader spoke anything other than their native language; Mussolini was described as effectively being the "chief interpreter" at the Conference.

Mussolini was raised by a devoutly Catholic mother [] and an anti-clerical father. His father never attended. Mussolini became anti-clerical like his father.

As a young man, he "proclaimed himself to be an atheist [] and several times tried to shock an audience by calling on God to strike him dead.

He considered religion a disease of the psyche, and accused Christianity of promoting resignation and cowardice.

Mussolini was an admirer of Friedrich Nietzsche. According to Denis Mack Smith , "In Nietzsche he found justification for his crusade against the Christian virtues of humility, resignation, charity, and goodness.

Mussolini made vitriolic attacks against Christianity and the Catholic Church, which he accompanied with provocative remarks about the consecrated host, and about a love affair between Christ and Mary Magdalene.

He denounced socialists who were tolerant of religion, or who had their children baptized, and called for socialists who accepted religious marriage to be expelled from the party.

He denounced the Catholic Church for "its authoritarianism and refusal to allow freedom of thought Despite making such attacks, Mussolini tried to win popular support by appeasing the Catholic majority in Italy.

In , Mussolini saw that three of his children were given communion. In , he had a priest perform a religious marriage ceremony for himself and his wife Rachele, whom he had married in a civil ceremony 10 years earlier.

After this conciliation, he claimed the Church was subordinate to the State, and "referred to Catholicism as, in origin, a minor sect that had spread beyond Palestine only because grafted onto the organization of the Roman empire.

Mussolini publicly reconciled with the Pope Pius XI in , but "took care to exclude from the newspapers any photography of himself kneeling or showing deference to the Pope.

In Mussolini began reasserting his anti-clericalism. He would sometimes refer to himself as an "outright disbeliever," and once told his cabinet that "Islam was perhaps a more effective religion than Christianity" and that the "papacy was a malignant tumor in the body of Italy and must 'be rooted out once and for all', because there was no room in Rome for both the Pope and himself.

After his fall from power in , Mussolini began speaking "more about God and the obligations of conscience", although "he still had little use for the priests and sacraments of the Church".

Although Mussolini had initially disregarded biological racism, he was a firm believer in national traits and made several generalizations about the Jews.

Nevertheless, Mussolini considered Italian Jews to be Italians. Mussolini's antisemitic remarks in the late s and early s were more suited to the moment rather than a sincere belief in them.

Mussolini blamed the Russian Revolution of on "Jewish vengeance" against Christianity with the remark "Race does not betray race Bolshevism is being defended by the international plutocracy.

That is the real truth". Yet, within a few weeks, he contradicted himself with the remark "Bolshevism is not, as people believe, a Jewish phenomenon.

The truth is that Bolshevism is leading to the utter ruin of the Jews of Eastern Europe". In the early s, Mussolini stated that Fascism would never raise a " Jewish Question " and in an article he wrote he stated "Italy knows no antisemitism and we believe that it will never know it," and then elaborated, "let us hope that Italian Jews will continue to be sensible enough so as not to give rise to antisemitism in the only country where it has never existed.

The relationship between Mussolini and Adolf Hitler was a contentious one early on. While Hitler cited Mussolini as an influence and privately expressed great admiration for him, [] Mussolini had little regard for Hitler, especially after the Nazis had assassinated his friend and ally, Engelbert Dollfuss , the Austrofascist dictator of Austria in With the assassination of Dollfuss, Mussolini attempted to distance himself from Hitler by rejecting much of the racialism particularly Nordicism and Germanicism and antisemitism espoused by the German radical.

Mussolini during this period rejected biological racism, at least in the Nazi sense, and instead emphasized " Italianizing " the parts of the Italian Empire he had desired to build.

When discussing the Nazi decree that the German people must carry a passport with either Aryan or Jewish racial affiliation marked on it, in , Mussolini wondered how they would designate membership in the "Germanic race":.

But which race? Does there exist a German race? Has it ever existed? Will it ever exist? Reality, myth, or hoax of the theorists? Ah well, we respond, a Germanic race does not exist.

Various movements. We repeat. Does not exist. We don't say so. Scientists say so. Hitler says so. When German-Jewish journalist Emil Ludwig asked about his views on race in , Mussolini exclaimed:.

It is a feeling, not a reality: ninety-five percent, at least, is a feeling. Nothing will ever make me believe that biologically pure races can be shown to exist today.

Amusingly enough, not one of those who have proclaimed the "nobility" of the Teutonic race was himself a Teuton. In a speech given in Bari in , he reiterated his attitude towards the German ideology of Master race :.

Thirty centuries of history allow us to look with supreme pity on certain doctrines which are preached beyond the Alps by the descendants of those who were illiterate when Rome had Caesar , Virgil and Augustus.

Though Italian Fascism varied its official positions on race from the s to , ideologically Italian Fascism did not originally discriminate against the Italian-Jewish community: Mussolini recognised that a small contingent had lived there "since the days of the Kings of Rome " and should "remain undisturbed".

By mid, the enormous influence Hitler now had over Mussolini became clear with the introduction of the Manifesto of Race. The Manifesto, which was closely modeled on the Nazi Nuremberg Laws , [91] stripped Jews of their Italian citizenship and with it any position in the government or professions.

The racial laws declared Italians to be part of the Aryan race and forbid sexual relations and marriages between Italians and those considered to be of an "inferior race", chiefly Jews and Africans.

They could not own land over a certain value, serve in the armed forces, employ non-Jewish domestics, or belong to the Fascist party.

Their employment in banks, insurance companies, and public schools was forbidden. Even after the introduction of the racial laws , Mussolini continued to make contradictory statements about race.

I don't believe a bit in the stupid anti-Semitic theory. I am carrying out my policy entirely for political reasons. Mussolini and the Italian Army in occupied regions openly opposed German efforts to deport Italian Jews to Nazi concentration camps.

These squads spread terror among Jews and anti-Fascists for a year and a half. In the power vacuum that existed during the first three or four months of the occupation, the semi-autonomous bands were virtually uncontrollable.

Many were linked to individual high-ranking Fascist politicians. Informers betrayed their neighbors, squadristi seized Jews and delivered them to the German SS, and Italian journalists seemed to compete in the virulence of their anti-Semitic diatribes.

It has been widely speculated that Mussolini adopted the Manifesto of Race in for merely tactical reasons, to strengthen Italy's relations with Germany.

Mussolini and the Italian military did not consistently apply the laws adopted in the Manifesto of Race. The Racial Manifesto could have been avoided.

It dealt with the scientific abstruseness of a few teachers and journalists, a conscientious German essay translated into bad Italian.

It is far from what I have said, written and signed on the subject. I suggest that you consult the old issues of Il Popolo d'Italia.

For this reason I am far from accepting Alfred Rosenberg 's myth. Mussolini also reached out to the Muslims in his empire and in the predominantly Arab countries of the Middle East.

A third son, Bruno, was killed in an air accident while flying a Piaggio P. His oldest son, Benito Albino Mussolini , from his marriage with Ida Dalser, was ordered to stop declaring that Mussolini was his father and in forcibly committed to an asylum in Milan, where he was murdered on 26 August after repeated coma-inducing injections.

Although the National Fascist Party was outlawed by the postwar Constitution of Italy , a number of successor neo-fascist parties emerged to carry on its legacy.

Historically, the largest neo-fascist party was the Italian Social Movement Movimento Sociale Italiano , which disbanded in and was replaced by National Alliance , a conservative party that distanced itself from Fascism its founder, former foreign minister Gianfranco Fini , declared during an official visit to Israel that Fascism was "an absolute evil".

Benito Mussolini, with a surfeit of bad history decaying in his imagination, could not see the plain realities before him. Like most of his generation he dramatised human affairs in incurably geographical patches, and like most of the masterful men of his time his belief in his power to mould the life about him carried him beyond sanity.

From the beginning his was an ill-balanced temperament; he would be blatant at one moment, and weeping at another.

He beat at the knees of Mother Reality like an unteachable child. He wanted war and conquest, triumph over definable enemies, fierce alliances, and unforgettable antagonisms.

He wanted glory. He died, as his last words testify, completely unaware of the fact that the rational treatment of human affairs does not admit of that bilaterality which the traditions of warfare require.

He persuaded himself and he persuaded great multitudes of people that two great systems of ideas faced each other in the world, "Leftism" and "Rightism", and that he and his associated Dictators embodied the latter.

He did contrive finally to impose the illusion of a definitive World War upon great masses of people. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
