“Rome is our point of departure and reference; it is our symbol or, if you wish, our myth. We dream of a Roman Italy, that is wise and strong, disciplined and imperial. Much of what was the immortal spirit of Rome, resurges in Fascism: Rome is the Lictor, Roman is our organisation of combat, Roman is our pride and courage.”

Mussolini, “Past and Future” speech at Birth of Rome celebration, 1922
