The official AHF Italy under Fascism quiz thread

Post by Marcus » 22 Jan 2006 17:35

We've had several different quizes running here in the forum for a while with great success so I'm starting one here in this brand new section too.

The rules are very simple:
The first one to post the correct answer to a question, posts a new question (must be on Italy during the period of 1922-1945) and so on.

The badge for service on the Russian Front ("Fronte Russo").

This attractive silver color badge shows the wreath with laurels (representing heroism) on the right side and thorns (representing suffering) on the left side, both touching the knot of Savoy at the top. The center of the badge shows two Cossack sabers crossing. At the base is a ribbon with the inscription "FRONTE RUSSO" highlighted in blue.

During the war against Greece, not less than three Ministri (Secretaries) "helped" the war effort as Regia Aeronautica pilots (not to count the ones in the army). The most famous of these pilots was Ministro degli Esteri (Foreign Secretary) Galeazzo Ciano. The other two...?

I would take an educated guess at Alessandro Pavolini being one of them.

Hint #1: his secretary's work was concerned with economic matters.

Raffaello Riccardi, Minister of Exchanges and Currency? I believe he had been vice-minister of Air Force, some year before so I suppose he was also an air force officer...
