Benito Mussolini

Members of the Italian National Fascist Party (PNF) during the March on Rome in 1922. The man in he centre wearing the suit with his hands against his chest is Fascist Duce Benito Mussolini. Italian Fascist forces had seized control of several Italian cities and threatened to violently overthrow the government of Prime Minister Luigi Facta if Facta and his government did not immediately resign. The March resulted in the King of Italy accepting the Fascists demands by dismissing Facta and appointing Mussolini as Prime Minister of what was then a coalition government where only a small minority were Fascists. Within several years Mussolini vastly increased the power of the Fascists, by 1926 he dismissed the Italian parliament and became an effective dictator, ruling by decree under the official sanctioning of the King, and the Fascist Party became a state institution with Fascist symbolism being included in state symbols. By 1928 Italy officially became a single party state led by the Fascist Party.

Libyan rebel leader Omar Muktar under arrest by Italian colonial forces in Libya.

Cyrenaican rebel leader Omar Mukhtar (the man in robes with a chain on his left arm) after his arrest by Italian armed forces in 1931 at the end of the Pacification of Libya, an Italian colonial campaign of repressing indigeneous Libyan resistance to Italian colonial rule that occurred from 1928 to 1932. Fascist Italy authorized the use of concentration camps, deliberate targetting of civilians, and ethnic cleansing, resulting in mass deaths of the population of the region of Cyrenaica in Libya. Fascist Italy's ethnic cleansing in Libya was aimed at allowing Italian settlers to take the territories and property formerly held by indigenous Libyans.
