Ausstellung der Faschistischen Revolution: Erste Zehnjahrfeier des Marsches auf Rom (Exhibition of the Fascist Revolution: The First Ten-Year-Anniversary of the March on Rome)

Bergamo: Nationale Faschistische Partei, 1933. First edition. Hardcover. Quarto. 258, [6]pp. Original half cloth over photo-illustrated paper covered boards, with red lettering on spine. Facsimile of a manuscript letter signed by Mussolini as the frontispiece. German-language edition of the famous Italian catalogue of the national exhibition celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the Fascist march on Rome, and the accession of its leader Benito Mussolini to power. On the morning of 28 October 1932, the tenth anniversary of the fascist assumption of power, Benito Mussolini inaugurated the most enduring propaganda event of the fascist dictatorship. The "Mostra della rivoluzione fascista" recreated, through a mélange of art, documentation, relics and historical simulations, the years 1914 to 1922, as interpreted by fascism after ten years in power. The exhibition's twenty-three rooms focused on each year from the beginning of the first world war until October 1922 and culminated in a 'Sala del Duce,' Room of the Duce, and a 'Sacrario dei Martiri,' Chapel of the Martyrs. The fascist regime, in staging its story and exposing as many citizens as possible to it, sought validation for its rule as it entered a second decade in power. This work is profusely illustrated throughout with numerous b/w and color photographic reproductions depicting the exhibition's twenty-three rooms. Some rubbing along edges. Head and tail of spine slightly frayed. Previous owner's name on inside of front cover. Inner margin of pages slightly rippled. Text in German. Binding in overall good, interior in good+ to very good condition. g to g+. Item #10589
