Title

Il fascismo [Fascism]. New York: Libreria del "Martello", [1922?].

Description

Valera (b. Como 1850 - d. Milano 1926) was a prolific journalist and novelist - referred to as the "Zola of Italy" - who led an even more colorful life than his confreres among anti-fascists. He spent three years in prison in the late 1880s for his involvement in a scandal with Emma Allis, ex-lover of Vittorio Emmanuele II.

His best known work perhaps is the 1924 Mussolini: da socialista a fascista, which remains in print; it depicts Mussolini as a "voltagabbana" or turncoat, and was suppressed by the fascist government.

The 16-page Il fascismo is unsurprisingly not listed among Valera's book-length works; it is probably a reprint of one or more articles he wrote for Il Martello during his long association with that newspaper - he is listed in advertisements for Il Martello as a regular contributor - or another publication a year or two before his booklength Mussolini.

There is an extensive list of books available for sale at Il Martello on the inside and outside rear covers.
