L'Alba was an Italian-language fascist weekly newspaper published from Tunis, Tunisia.[1][2][3] It was founded by Giuseppe Colombo and R. A. Oliva, with the first issue published on 5 September 1935.[1][2][4]

Regarding the war against Ethiopia, l'Alba boasted of having two companies of blackshirts from Tunisia, "Numidie" and "Zama", at the battle-fields. The publication attacked freemasons and anti-fascists, while appealing to Italians to buy products from their own nation. The British consulate found the diatribes in l'Alba insulting to Great Britain and Malta, and lodged a formal complaint against the publication. It was subsequently shut down by French colonial authorities - with the last issue published on 14 November 1935.[4]
