EXCLUSIVE WEBINAR | “Mussolini’s Mistresses”
Presented by Dr. Nicholas Albanese
with Additional Commentary by Dr. Rocky Ruggiero
It was well-known that Benito Mussolini, the founder of modern fascism, had numerous extra-marital affairs throughout his political career. Some of his lovers, which included minors, became a threat to il Duce’s public image while others made significant contributions to Mussolini’s – and fascism’s – cultural and political success in Italy. In fact, without some of these “State lovers” it is difficult to imagine that Mussolini would have been able to dominate Italian politics in the years between the two World Wars. In this presentation, I will talk about the mistresses who helped determine or threaten the fortunes of Benito Mussolini and Italian fascism.
The webinar will include a 45-minute lecture followed by 15-minutes of Q&A.
