Hi DavidFrankenberg,

Yes, as I said, they were close in the late 1930s.

As I posted last time, "However, in what I think is the last mention of Muti in them, in November 1940, he says, ".....as regards Muti it is timely to recall that from the first of January on I constantly denounced his incapacity and advised that he be replaced at once."

The position Ciano was advocating Muti be replaced in from January to November 1940 was the one you mention - secretary of the Fascist party. Muti was replaced on 30 October 1940.

To his credit, Muti seems to have 'walked the walk', not just 'talked the talk'.

Cheers,

Sid.
Ciano was just honest in asking the removal of his friend from a job he was not good for. Muti and him were not in bad terms. If it was so he would not have put him at such a high responsibility as secretary of the party.

Hi David,

it may just be the translation, but "denounced" seems quite a severe word of criticism.

Cheers,

Sid.

None of the before mentioned reasons for his removal would warrant the method in which he was taken out.

IMO this was simply being proactive to prevent him from doing something rash.
