Post by awara pagal deewana » 18 Jan 2003 11:06

Can anyone provide me the pictures of Benito Mussolini's execution and hanging? I also wanted to know what happened to the other fascists' dead bodies after they were hanged in Piazzele loreto on april 29, 1945? Where they were buried? Can anyone provide me with the pictures of these fascists hanging beside mussolni and clara petaaci?

The Fifteen That Were Executed
The Liberation Committe decided to select 15 Fascists to execute along with Mussolini. As far as I understand, Mussolini replaced most of his cabinet and close advisors after he stepped down in 1943. Some of them are on the list. Clara Petacci wasn't on the list. 1,2,6,16,17 were ones hung up in Piazalle Loreto.

Benito Mussolini, Il Duce
1 Francesco Barracu - Undersecretary in cabinet office
2 Fernando Mezzasomma - Ministry of Popular Culture(i.e. propoganda), Sept 1943
3 Nicola Bombacci - Minister of Interior. Former communist.
4 Luigi Gatti - Duce's private secretary after organizing his new cabinet.
5 Pisenti Liverani - Minister of Communications
6 Alessandro Pavolini - ex-Ministry of Popular Culture. Editor of Rome's "Messagero". Pushed for speedy execution of Ciano in January, 1944. Tried to organize the Fascist Army to make a last stand near Alps.
7 Paolo Zerbino - Minister of Interior, Dec 1943
8 Ruggero Romano - Minister Public Works
9 Paolo Porta - Head of Fascist Party in Lombardy
10 Alfredo Coppolo - Rector of the Bologna University
11 Ernesto Daquanno - Director of Stefani agency
12 Mario Nudi - President of Fascist Agriculture Association
13 Colonel Vito Casalinuovo - Mussolini's adjutant
14 Pietro Calistri - Air Force pilot
15 Utimberger - an obscure journalist, selected at random from the prisoners.
16? Archille Starace - Secretary of Fascist Party 1931-1939. Killed on the spot and, one source says, he was hung to left of Duce.
17 Clara Petacci - Mussolini's mistress. She refused to leave Mussolini and followed his convoy into the Alps. She met up with Mussolini and was at his side when he was gunned down. Her brother, Marcello, was executed at his capture.
