This repression hit moderate Liberals and Catholics as well as Socialists. As the Fascist movement built a broad base of support around the powerful ideas of and anti-Bolshevism, Mussolini began planning to seize power at the national level. His two middle names, Amilcare and Andrea, came from Italian socialists Amilcare Cipriani and Andrea Costa. Anxious to demonstrate that he was not merely the leader of fascism but also the head of a united Italy, he presented to the king a list of ministers, a majority of whom were not members of his party. But after taking power, Il Duce began working to patch up that relationship. His stomach bore ulcer scars, but none of the long-rumored syphilis was visible.
Poison gas was again used illegally during the conquest of Ethiopia in 1935 and 1936, after which Il Duce declared that Italy finally had its empire. By late 1921, the Fascists controlled large parts of Italy, and the left, in part because of its failures during the postwar years, had all but collapsed. He wore boots, but had no jacket. Once they reunited, The MacManus family went to kill The Yakavetta family's boss and fled to Ireland. Born to a socialist father, Mussolini was named after leftist Mexican President Benito Juárez.

Sometimes, by extension, applied to a master of blunts.
This industrial center had been held for only four days by Communist partisans, but from 1919 on it had been the spiritual headquarters of the Fascist Party founded there by former journalist and World War I Army mountain corps veteran Benito Mussolini. If the League had imposed oil sanctions, Mussolini said, he would have had to withdraw from Ethiopia within a week. Kissing and butt plugging ensue. Imprisoned first on the island of Ponza, then on a remoter island off the coast of , he was eventually transported to a hotel high on the in the mountains of , from which his rescue by the Germans was deemed impossible. But the thus established at Salò was, as Mussolini himself grimly admitted to visitors, no more than a puppet government at the mercy of the German command.
Italy fared poorly from the outset, with ignominious defeats in North Africa, Greece, and the Soviet Union. This act of vengeance was only the start of Noah MacManus' mafioso killing spree. But he was expelled from the party two years later over his support for World War I. A large, ugly, depraved, and nasty crowd of civilians and partisans gathered and quickly got out of control; neither fire hoses nor bullets fired in the air could deter or disperse it. Three months later, in a widely reported speech in Bologna, he hinted that he himself might prove to be such a man. He read widely and voraciously, if not deeply, plunging into the philosophers and theorists , , , , , , and , picking out what appealed to him and discarding the rest, forming no political philosophy of his own yet impressing his companions as a potential revolutionary of uncommon personality and striking presence.
These were two large boxes of 600 love letters from the Duce spanning the 12 years of their passionate association from February 1933 to April 1945. The reality, however, was far less rosy than the propaganda made it appear. With Louie's help, Noah began taking down La Cosa Nostra, one by one. He had transformed and reinvigorated his divided and demoralized country; he had carried out his social reforms and public works without losing the support of the industrialists and landowners; he had even succeeded in coming to terms with the papacy.

In 1929 Mussolini signed an agreement with the Vatican under which the Church received authority over marriage and was compensated for property that had been seized decades earlier. By 8 am, word had gotten around the city via a special newspaper edition as well as bulletins on Radio Free Milan that the hated Duce, revered just four months earlier at public rallies by this very same citizenry, was dead and available for scorn in the Piazzale Loreto.
There, the body of Mussolini was formally autopsied. So fascism was created and its symbol devised. It is guarded around the clock by twin neo-Fascist sentries in long capes. All this was part of a fantastic yarn known as the so-called British Thread. As an adult, Benito Mussolini would have two wives and many mistresses. When Noah's father refused to work with the mobsters, they brutally murdered him in front of Noah's eyes.
