Arts - 19 Novembre Attilio Teruzzi: “The Perfect Fascist”. Today This Could Be a Trumpist or a Putinist Mostly neglected by history, Teruzzi was always close to Mussolini, physically and ideologically. The enforcer of discipline among the Fascist Blackshirt militia, he played a pivotal role in the march on Rome in 1922 which brought Mussolini to power. In his private life Teruzzi would emerge as an ineffectual man in many ways, clinging to large female figures whenever he could and then cheating on them. A man created by a bella figura obsessed, parvenus petit bourgeois mammista culture.
