All’armi siam fascisti!

1961 - Documentario

A hundred years after the March on Rome, this is one of the most beautiful documentary films by Mangini – Del Fra, supported by the critic Lino Micciché, with commentary by Franco Fortini.

Half a century of history, from the 50th anniversary to the Centenary of the Unification of Italy, reconstructed with exclusive repertory documents: from the Libyan war to the Peace of Versailles, from the turmoil of the post-war period to the fascist terror and corruption, up to the Resistance and the events of July 1960. The film – made 16 years after the end of the Second World War – ends with a still relevant question: is fascism really over?

Presented at the 40th Torino Film Festival, in the section Back to Life.
