Sound Bite and conversation:

Mussolini, Romano

(son of Benito Mussolini ) , speaking Italian:
-  "I think that my father always built upon a second Congress in Munich – even after the war broke out. "

Boscariol, Paul

(Mussolini’s Officer) , speaking Italian:
-  "They inculpated Mussolini. They always said that he served Italy well but he made a big mistake: a friendship with Hitler – that caused his fall. "

Boscariol, Paul

(Mussolini’s Officer) , speaking Italian:
-  "He was not the great conqueror any more but a fallen man with his hat over his eyes so that he could hide his embittered face. "

Montanelli, Indro

(antifascist in 1922 when Mussolini appeared) , speaking Italian:
-  "From now on the game was clear. Hitler held Mussolini in his hand – which the latter regretted. The Duce knew that Hitler’s hand was stronger than his own. "

Carlebach, Emil

(ex-communist when Mussolini appeared, 1922) , speaking German:
-  "The Nazis learned their tactics from Mussolini, and they formed 500 or one or two thousand strong civil-disorder brigades in the working-class districts. They broke into flats, gave people beatings, and smashed up the homes and offices of working people and their unions. "

Hanfstaengl, Egon

(son of Hitler’s press chief) , speaking German:
-  "His example left a deep impression on Hitler, and in 1923 he tried a similar takeover in Germany. Mussolini, a man who shut out all doubt, was idolized by Hitler. "

Montanelli, Indro

(antifascist in 1922 when Mussolini appeared) , speaking Italian:
-  "… He was a great actor, without ideas, with very little culture, but one who knew very well how to hurt people. He knew how to manipulate people. "

Carletti, Giuseppe

(witness in 1922, saw Mussolini) , speaking Italian:
-  "He had aggressive followers. These hot-headed youngsters scared people. They held their bats always ready to strike, one, two and they struck. "
