Nascita e avvento del fascismo (Birth and advent of fascism)

Angelo Tasca, La Nuova Italia.

Composed in the years of exile (Tasca was among the founders of the Italian Communist Party, from which he would be expelled for his anti-Stalin positions) it was originally released by the French publisher Gallimard in 1938, with the title “Naissance du fascisme”. Angelo Tasca’s book can be considered the first written text not only to be a political testimony and criticism, but a reconstruction of the deep dynamics that had led to the genesis of the fascist movement in Italy and then to its rise to power.
