Summary: In 1936, Mussolini was on top of the world. In 1945, he was on the business end of Partisan machine guns. By what process did the man who aspired to Roman-style supremacy finally pay the piper? This program looks at the latter period of Italian Fascism, from the height of Mussolini's reign to his fall from power and his death. Using colorized historical footage and reenactments, the film addresses Mussolini's attempts to inculcate Fascism through the Italian school system, the signing of the Lateran Pact with the Vatican, Italy's barbaric colonization efforts and ill-advised entry into the Spanish Civil War, Mussolini's betrayal of his own family members, and the alliance with Germany - which eventually doomed both Italian Fascism and its maniacal leader.
