History[edit] After the Nazi-engineered Gran Sasso raid
Gran Sasso raid
liberated Mussolini, on 13 September 1943 the National Fascist Party
National Fascist Party
(PNF). was revived as the PFR and as the single party of the Northern and Nazi-protected Italian Social Republic (the Salò
Republic). Its secretary was Alessandro Pavolini. The PFR did not outlast Mussolini's execution and the disappearance of the Salò
state in April 1945. However, it inspired the creation of the Italian Social Movement
Italian Social Movement
(MSI)[2] and the MSI has been seen as the successor to the PFR and the PNF.[3] The MSI was formed by former fascist leaders and veterans of the republic's fascist army.[4] The party tried to modernise and revise fascist doctrine into a more moderate and sophisticated direction.[5] The MSI was considered legal under Italy's postwar constitution which forbids the formation of overtly Fascist parties. Ideology[edit] Italian Fascism
Italian Fascism
was rooted in Italian nationalism
Italian nationalism
and the desire to restore and expand Italian territories, which Italian Fascists deemed necessary for a nation to assert its superiority and strength and to avoid succumbing to decay.[6] Italian Fascists claimed that modern Italy
is the heir to ancient Rome and its legacy and historically supported the creation of an Italian Empire to provide spazio vitale ("living space") for colonization by Italian settlers and to establish control over the Mediterranean Sea.[7] Italian Fascism
Italian Fascism
promoted a corporatist economic system whereby employer and employee syndicates are linked together in associations to collectively represent the nation's economic producers and work alongside the state to set national economic policy.[8] This economic system intended to resolve class conflict through collaboration between the classes.[9] Italian Fascism
Italian Fascism
opposed liberalism and capitalism, but rather than seeking a reactionary restoration of the pre-French Revolutionary world, which it considered to have been flawed, it had a forward-looking direction.[10] It was opposed to Marxist socialism because Marxism
was typically opposed to nationalism.[11] However, it was also opposed to the reactionary conservatism developed by Joseph de Maistre.[12] It believed the success of Italian nationalism required respect for tradition and a clear sense of a shared past among the Italian people, alongside a commitment to a modernized Italy.[13] Secretary of the PFR[edit] Main article: List of Secretaries of Italian Fascist parties § Secretary of the Republican Fascist Party
