remembering Benito Mussolini

Gamma 3000, a Rome-based printer, was the first to start producing Mussolini calendars in the early 1990s and now competes with three rivals. Around 10,000 are printed by the company each year and circulated to newsstands across Italy regardless of whether copies were ordered....
During Mussolini’s 20-year dictatorship he sent thousands of Jews to their deaths, interned gay people on the Adriatic island of San Domino, gagged the free press and executed political opponents. Mussolini and his mistress, Clara Petacci, were shot dead by partisans in the final days of the second world war before their bodies were strung up on a meat hook in a Milan square.

  1. But “he made the trains to run on time!” Actually in this he was a Trumpish liar. Work was being done on improving train service before he came to power. He lied about his contribution to the improvements. In fact the actual improvements were minor.
