Thomas makes an excellent point. "We" in the article Louis linked refers to the US government and US business, but the title implies that we all loved Mussolini. My grandfather, Dante Benigni, was a socialist and obviously no supporter of Mussolini. Nor I would bet were his brother and the miners and factory workers who lived nearby. My relatives in the mining town in which I was born were not radicals but they weren't fascists either. On the other hand, I lived in downtown Johnstown, PA in 1970 in a house owned by 2 Sicilians. I doubt they were Mussolini supporters either. But to be able to drink in a bar on Sunday, I joined the Italian Club across the alley from their house, and the positive things said about Mussolini drove me out of there pretty quickly!
