The Creation of the Fascist
From the Earliest Months of Fascism.
Mussolini asks why he does not organize a “Facsio di Combattimento” at Pisa. “Metteti al lavoro e sempre Avanti”, and sending instructions on how to set about the task,
“nostri amici fidati” issue invitations to a meeting at which anyone may take part who accepts the Popolo d'Italia's policy of immediate action (“realizzazione immediate”), the meeting nominates three commissions “di propaganda e stampa…di finanza e…di preparazione”, these will be linked to a Central Committee in Milan with the minimum of formalities - “Niente statuti. Niente regolamenti” - just one letter from Milan “che costa da una lira…Va bene?”.
The first Facsio de combattimento was organized at Milan on March 23 , 1919
