This eight-hour documentary set features stunning, unseen footage form the Italian government's archives, depicting the key events and personalities in II Duce's rise to power. From his early career as a socialist journalist, to the Abyssinian war and an ill-fated alliance with Hitler, Mussolini was driven by the desire to put Italy at the heart of European power and culture. He was a consummate politician who sought to win over the Italian peasant workers, middle classes, industry and army to his fascist ideology. Desperate to build relationships with England and France, Mussolini's fascism was distinct from Hitler's Nazism, but events in Europe would draw him inexorably closer to Germany.
Acclaimed on it's television broadcast, Mussolini and the History of Italian Fascism is the definitive story of the rise and fall of fascism through the eyes of its people and leaders. Packaged in a 4 discs collectors box, this programme is the ultimate resource for those interested in the life and death of a man who shaped Italy in the 20th Century.
