Defining Fascism Part IV

The contrast between the massive failure of the Fascists during the 1919 elections and their strong performance in the 1921 elections is quite fascinating.
Both elections saw them trying to make alliances. In 1919 unsuccessfully with his former comrades of the Italian Socialist Party, in 1921 successfully with various secular nationalist moderate parties. In both cases the party presented itself as new and multifaceted and in both cases there was widespread turmoil across Italy.
