Administrative/Biographical history:

Giacomo Matteotti was an Italian socialist leader, who was assassinated by fascists in 1924. His death caused a public outcry and threatened to destroy Italian fascism, though the weakness of the parliament meant that, despite a judicial enquiry, the murderers went free and Mussolini himself remained unpunished. Folowing the incident, Mussolini gave up all attempts to work with Parliament, and took steps to create a totalitarian regime.


Scope and content/abstract:

Five bound volumes containing typescript transcripts of the Matteotti trial, 1924-1925, with photocopied pages from an article about the affair by Gaetano Salvernini, [1947].
