    Just regarding the title of this thread. He would like Latin though, he was a fascist after all.

    Mussolini once said that he wanted to recreate the Roman Empire. It's not surprising that he was obsessed with Latin at all.

    The word 'fascist' has been manipulated, used and abused by so many for so long that it's hard to get to the bottom of it nowadays.

    Merely an Italian wanting a bit of living space.

    I'd say that's probably the best definition of a fascist you're going to get, if I say so myself.

    Nike either end holding Fasces? What building is this and do you have a translation of the text?
