This was the famous Lancia 3RO truck armored, used by Lucca's Black Brigade and so called "the Duce's autoblinda".
This truck followed the Squadristi when they moved first to Milan and then to Como in the last days of the war, late april 1945. The truck finally reached mussolini while he was menaging to escape from Como and the Duce was transported in this autoblinda in the last kms to Dongo.
morer detailed information can be found in books of mr Piero Sebastiani(he was an officer of the Lucca's Black Bigade) and in my book about RSI's armored units (all in italian, unfortunately).
