Amid strikes, social unrest, and parliamentary breakdown, Mussolini preached forcible restoration of order and practised terrorism with armed groups. In 1921 he was elected to parliament and the National Fascist party was officially organized. Backed by nationalists and propertied interests, in October 1922, Mussolini sent the Fascists to March on Rome . King Victor Emmanuel III permitted them to enter the city and called on Mussolini to form a cabinet. This created the fascist regime under Mussolini.
Mussolini was immediately invited to form the Italian Government by King Victor Emmanuel III. Although Mussolini was given extraordinary powers to return order to Italy he governed constitutionally until 1924 after the violence of the 1924 elections resulting in the death of Socialist party deputy Giacomo Mattoetti. Mussolini moved to suspend constitutional government and establish a totalitarian regime. He proceeded in stages to establish a dictatorship by forbidding the parliament to initiate legislation, making him responsible to the king alone. By 1926 he had passed decrees issuing him the force of law, establishing total censorship of the press and suppressing all opposition parties.
Mussolini depended on Hitler against the democratic countries. On this day in 1943,Benito Mussolini, fascist dictator of Italy, is voted out of power by his own Grand Council and arrested upon leaving a meeting with King Emanuel, who tells IL Duce that the war is lost. After the meeting he was arrested. He was then saved and was a political puppet for a short time, but when he went to flee the country he was captured and shot and killed.
His movement turned into powerful radicalism, obtaining support from landowners in the Po valley, industrialists, and many army officers. Fascist blackshirt squads carried on civil war with Socialists, Communists, Catholics, and Liberals. In October 1922 Mussolini secured permission from King Victor Emmanuel lll to form a coalition government. In 1925-26, after a lengthy crisis with the parliament following the killing of the Socialist leader Giacomo Matteotti, he imposed a Totalarian Dictatorship. His Corperative State came to terms with Italian Capitalism but abolished the free trade unions.
Although he was active with the socialist party, Mussolini started publishing editorials that supported World War I, which he was drafted in himself in 1915 (Mussolini). This led to his expulsion from the socialist party. Ready for a major change, Mussolini gathered many nationalistic groups in Italy together and formed a single organization under his leadership (Mussolini). Rising to power in the wake of the Great War, Benito Mussolini was a violent, military-minded dictator who saw to the emergence of the National Fascist Party in Italy. Although he is known for his extreme fascist ideas, Mussolini did not begin his political career as a right-wing radical.
Another enduring legacy of fascism was a system of industrial holding companies financed by the state. Adopting an aggressive foreign policy, Mussolini defied the League of Nations and conquered Ethiopia in 1936. This won him acclaim in almost every sector of the populace. II Duce's popularity declined, however, after he sent troops to help General Francisco Franco in the Spanish Civil War, this linked Italy to Nazi Germany, enacted anti-Jewish laws, and invaded Albania. Because of military unpreparedness, Mussolini did not enter World War II until June 1940, when the Germans had overrun France.
According to the lecture, Hitler’s plans were to make it known the Germans were the superior race, Jews and Gypsies were subhuman, Hitler promised to take back the land taken from the after the war, and Lebensraum. Both men had their countries became a part of the Axis powers, and along with Japan became Fascist nations. Mussolini’s rise to power came through his influence on the fascists people. According to the lecture it was fascists that marched to Rome in October 1922, and the people demanded that the king put Mussolini in charge of the government. It was through fear that Mussolini gained his power.
Both Hitler and Mussolini were finally given the opportunity to form a government and carried out their election promises. Their ruling of power came about to be so similar because of their similar roads to power. Here we see some differences in the way Hitler and Mussolini actually came to power. Mussolini encountered many forms of resistance and had to co-exist with other competitors for power, such as the Italian monarchy and rivals even inside his own party. Hitler proved very strong right from the beginning and he brought his plans very nearly to completion, controlling the party and the country much more thoroughly than Mussolini could.
This outraged Mussolini, who had already gotten a group of followers. Together, they took over the national transportation system. Benito Mussolini gained power in Italy in 1922. Once he had power, he put on a demonstration with his followers, which got him invited by the king to form a new government. With this encouragement, he created a fascist, anti-democratic government in Italy.

Mussolini forged the paramilitary Fascist movement, using it to march to Rome, become Prime Minister, and then seize dictatorial power Mussolini allied himself to Hitler, trusting him to prop his leadership. Benito Mussolini rose into power in the wake of World War I and became Prime Minister of Italy in 1922. Mussolini’s destiny was to rule Italy as a modern Caesar and to re-create the Roman Empire which means that he also wants to gain control not only in his own country, but in other countries as well by waging wars over other countries like Libya, Ethiopia, Albania, and Somalia. He wanted to gain the Mediterranean-African empire through was against French.
