First biography to reveal the details of Mussolini’s private life with a particular focus on his renowned appetite for women, and no scabrous or intimate detail spared. Out of the ruins and savagery of Second World War, the figure of Benito Mussolini looms large as one of the most influential during the first half of the twentieth century. After his ignominious end in Piazzale Loreto, most have tried to erase the memory and the actions of the once powerful dictator, while others have made an attempt to reassess his life and works, despite the indelible legacy of death, violence and destruction he left behind. But who is the real Benito Mussolini? Now that over sixty years of scholarship and an abundance of first-hand documents by his closest relations and his many lovers are available to the researcher, the elusive, contradictory and often misunderstood traits of his character are beginning to take shape into a more meaningful and better defined portrait of the man, the politician and the leader.
