§774 Mussolini in Rome and overseas (1922-1939): IX-96.

IX-96 (§774):

The army denied to enter the city,
Il Duce shall enter there by persuasion,
He claims the army led to the vulnerable gates,
They shall wage wars, death of bloodshed.

(Dans cité entrer exercit desniee,
Duc entrera par persuasion,
Aux foibles portes clam armee amenee,
Mettront feu, mort de sang effusion.) (№10)

NOTES: Exercit: = « exercite, s.m., armée (army).» (Godefroy).

The army denied to enter the city, Il Duce shall enter there by persuasion
: At Udine he told them, in the last of a series of major speeches given all over the country: ‘Our programme is simple: we wish to govern Italy.’ He would govern Italy as it had never been governed since Roman times: firmly, fairly, justly, honestly, above all efficiently. On 16 October 1922 Mussolini decided to force the issue, believing that if he waited, Giolitti, the one man he feared, might steal his role. He arranged for a march on Rome for the end of the month, by four divisions totalling 40,000 blackshirted men. Many army and police commanders agreed not to fire on them, and his paper, Il Popolo d’Italia, carried the banner: I grigioverdi fraternizzano con le Camicie Nere! [The graygreens (of the Italian Army uniforms) will fraternize with the Black Shirt (of the Fascists)!] Mussolini had a lifelong capacity for hovering uneasily between grandeur and farce. By the time his ill-equipped, badly clothed and unfed army had halted outside Rome [The army denied to enter the city], in pouring rain, on the evening of 28 October, it did not present a very formidable spectacle. Mussolini played his cards skillfully. When he was telephoned in Milan by the King’s
ADC, General Cittadini, and offered partial power in a new ministry, he simply replaced the receiver. The next day, 29 October, he graciously consented to form his own government, provide the invitation by phone was confirmed by telegram. The wire duly came, and that evening he went to Milan Station in state, wearing his black shirt, to catch the night-sleeper to Rome... [Il Duce shall enter there by persuasion]» (Johnson, 1991, p.99-100).
