Storyboard Text

  • In September 1911, Mussolini had returned to Italy, where there had been a general strike called in by the socialists, violence and chaos ensued and Mussolini was arrested and spent six months in prison.
  • It was around this time, that their was a split in the Italian socialist party. For the first time a socialist had been invited to be selected for a chance at Prime Minister, Mussolini and other revolutionaries saw this as capitulation to the bourgeois, so Mussolini and his section had left the party and expelled all reformist socialists from their ranks.
  • After getting out of prison, Mussolini had moved to Milan, where he continued to edit the newspaper article, "Avanti!", This is where Mussolini had been when the war broke out, and he had called for total neutrality in the war, but over time his grip on that claim had began to water down, and he had began to support the war
  • Around this time, the first "fashy" groups were starting to form, they were war interventionists but socialists at the same time. This was all based on a manifesto that claimed that Italy should be on the side of France as France was the cradle of revolution and Britain, home of every liberty.
  • At this time, Mussolini was expelled from the Italian socialist party, resigned from "avanti!", and founded his own newsletter, il popola d'Italia, which contained content that was anything but socialist. Around this time the French government also gave Mussolini 100,000 francs and had tried to push Italy into the war on the Central Powers side.
  • Italy had joined the war in May 1915, and Mussolini was drafted and fought in the eleventh Italian regiment, By this point in his life, Mussolini was seriously gaining popularity throughout the nation.Soldiers and officers often wanted to meet him on the battlefield, but he was soon injured.
