Italian Fascism denotes the authoritarian, nationalist, Fascismo politics via which Prime Minister Benito Mussolini ruled the Kingdom of Italy, from 1922 until 1943. Etymologically, Fascismo (Fascism) derives from the Italian fascio (league), derived from the Latin fasces (bundles); the ancient Roman Symbol of Authority. It dates from Mussolini’s January 1915 coinage and the 1919 establishment of the Fascist Revolutionary Party begun as the fasci di combattimento (combat leagues) popular movement.
