§775 Mussolini into war to be lost in the end (1940-1943): X-64.

X-64 (§775):

Weep Milan, weep Lucca, Florence,
For your great Duke who shall mount the chariot,
Who shall change his seat to advance near Venice,
When the Pillar at Rome shall change.

(Pleure Milan, pleure Luques, Florence,
Que ton grand Duc sur le char montera,
Changer le siege pres de Venise s'avance,
Lors que Colomne à Rome changera.)

NOTES: Milan, Lucca, Florence: Representing Italy by synecdoche, = Millane, Florence (§770, VII-32), = Luc (§776, IX-80).

Your great Duke
: = Il Duce Benito Mussolini (§774, IX-96), = the Duke (§776, IX-80)

Colomne: = Colonne (Fr.) = Column, Colomne being from the Latin « columna, ae, f., a column, pillar, post.» (Smith-Lockwood).

Colomne à Rome: = the Pillar of Rme = the Pillar of the state of Italy, i.e., the sovereign King of Italy.

Weep Milan, weep Lucca, Florence, For your great Duke who shall mount the chariot, Who shall change his seat to advance near Venice, When the Pillar at Rome shall change: = §770, VII-32: One of the Royal mountain shall be born of a hovel... Shall exhaust Faenza, Florence, wealth and the nation: « He declared war on Britain and France on June 10th, 1940, when France was already defeated [your great Duke who shall mount the chariot]. On the following October 28th his troops invaded Greece but were repulsed and, soon after, suffered reverses in Libya and East Africa. These defeats weakened Mussolini’s prestige, especially as the Fascists had always sought to inculcate admiration for the glories of war [Weep Milan, weep Lucca, Florence, For your great Duke who shall mount the chariot...]. By the summer of 1941 Mussolini had become virtually a German pensionary but it was not until July 25th, 1943, that a coup by King Victor Emmanuel and Marshal Badoglio forced him to resign [When the Pillar at Rome shall change]. He was imprisoned, but was rescued from the Appennines by German parachutists (September 12th, 1943) and set up a Republican Fascist Government which administered German-occupied northern Italy [Who shall change his seat to advance near Venice].» (Palmer, p.194-195).

Who shall change his seat to advance near Venice: « Mussolini is no more than a marionette in the hands of the Führer. He opposes against the government of Marshal Badoglio an ‘Italian Social Republic’ born on December 1st, 1943, on the shore of Lake Garda. Surnamed the ‘Republic of Salo’ [his seat near Venice], this ephemeral regime is not but a last misadventure of the radical fascism, subject to the German protector, whose members draw the northern Italy into fire and blood.» (Trémolières IV, p.61).
