ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the role and importance of Fascism in the political history of Italy. The author remarks that the history of the Fascist political party, which is much simpler and shorter than that of the Fascist revolutionary movement, can be easily summed up. The recent political struggles in Italy had unluckily opened the way to parties anti-nationalist in theory as well as in practice. For years socialism had preached to the masses the principles of the economic class struggle pure and simple, totally disregarding the immense danger to the unity and strength of nations in theories which appeal to violence in order to assert the primacy of material requirements and which deny all the moral and historical values championed by nationalism in behalf of state and country. In Italy of late three elements had become in a certain sense a common peril through their common international spirit. Fascism as the motive of a political party of conscious, impetuous, abounding nationalism challenged the three internationalisms and fought them in the social, spiritual and the political field.
