Did you Know? Italy was under a dictatorship for 20 years
In 1925, Benito Mussolini founded a dictatorship in Italy, which he controlled until 1945. Mussolini, known as Il Duce at his peak, was not always a fascist. In reality, he began his political career as a radical socialist and served as Prime Minister of Italy until 1922. During WWII, he allied Italy with Germany and was killed by partisan fighters in 1945.
