HOPE not hate international: Revealed: the Italians who worship Mussolini

www.hopenothate.org.uk, $reference.date [cached]

Christopher Duggan, a history professor at the University of Reading in the UK, has written extensively about Mussolini and Italy's fascist era. He also travels to Predappio several times a year for his research.

"It's not all just 25-year-olds with shaved heads," he tells The Local. "It's average-looking families who have this vision of a man who helped make Italy great."
Duggan says this positive vision is partly because Italy has still not really come to terms with what happened in the 1930s under fascism.
...
His glowing rhetoric about fascism since then has helped to rehabilitate Mussolini, explains Duggan.
At a ceremony in Milan to commemorate the holocaust in January 2013, he defended Mussolini for allying with Hitler, saying the dictator probably reasoned it was "better to be on the winning side".
He also praised him for "having done good" and said Italy "did not have the same responsibilities as Germany". Last year, his Forza Italia party fought an unsuccessful campaign against plans by the city of Turin to revoke Mussolini's status as an honorary citizen of the city. All of this coincided with a campaign to denigrate anti-fascism.
"This has made people think it was positive," Duggan says.
The hugely controversial role of the Catholic Church, with which Mussolini fostered good relations to gain strength and moral legitimacy for his regime, is also crucial in influencing how fascism is remembered.
"You can't get away from the massive support for fascism from the Catholic Church," Duggan says.
