Mussolini the Man of Law

Was the Duce an upright defender of justice?

From: Mussolini Also Did A Lot of Good


The author tackles the popular Italian myth that Mussolini in fact represented a parenthesis of honesty and moral rectitude in the history of the political life of Italy. He examines fascist rule of law, street violence, the murder of Giacomo Matteotti, corruption, and Mussolini’s handling of the mafia.
