The year 1932, the tenth anniversary of Mussolini’s March on Rome, was fascism’s Decennale. Commemorating Italian fascism’s seizure of power, the Decennale was celebrated by the regime in a deliberate attempt to radicalize the original movement and develop it into an imperial and racist regime.

In Mussolini’s Decennale, Antonio Morena explores a cross-section of Italian culture during the Decennale. Studying literature, speeches, documentaries, films, textbooks, and the 1932 Exhibition, he discusses how the regime, its patrons, and even its critics all appropriated the historical events of 1922 for their political advantage. Positioning the 1932 anniversary celebrations as the crux of the fascist transition from conservatism to totalitarianism, Mussolini’s Decennale broadens our understanding of fascist ideology, cultural politics, and Realpolitik.

About the Author:

Antonio Morena received his PhD in Romance Languages and Letters from Harvard University.

Review:

“Through his analysis of novels, films, and exhibitions, Antonio Morena demonstrates that in 1932 the fascist regime wanted to educate young fascists to engage in a ‘March from Rome,’ setting up the state’s future imperial conquests. This is an original reading of some famous and not so famous intellectuals and their engagement with fascism’s celebration of its rise to power.”

(Paul Baxa, Department of History, Ave Maria University)
