E fu subito regime. Il fascismo e la marcia su Roma (And it was immediately regime. Fascism and the march on Rome)

Emilio Gentile, Laterza.

It is the most analytical and brilliant reconstruction of the genesis and events that led to the march on Rome and the establishment of the first Mussolini cabinet, in the autumn of 1922. Gentile refuses to read a phase of transition in the Twenty Years, which would coincide with the two-year period preceding the Matteotti crisis, in which the dictator would have attempted the path of collaboration with pre-existing institutions and with conservative political forces, and law in perspective of radical break with the unitary tradition already the first acts of the fascist government, marked by an assault (symbolic as well as substantial) the freedoms and balances of parliamentary freedom and continuous ferocity against the remnants of the opposition.
