Mussolini had pre-war ambitions on Corsica (where the language was closer to Italian than to French), Tunisia (where there were far more Italian than French immigrants), and part of south-eastern France (I think Garibaldi had been born in Nice/Nizza).
However, he restricted his annexation to such little territory as had been conquered by Italian arms in June 1940 - essentially the evacuated small town of Menton on the Italian/French Mediterranean Coast, which became Mentone.
The Germans were anxious not to drive the French Empire into the British camp by allowing Italian colonial annexations. It also seems that pride prevented Mussolini from demanding more than Italy had conquered. However, I think it can be safely assumed that Mussolini would have pushed for more in the event of a victorious Peace.

I spent this summer in Italy and was totally fascinated by the insights I got from the history of this incredible country. Especially Rome's history is very interesting with regard to WW2. If you are really interested in Italy during WW2 you should totally visit Rome! Find some inspiration on this page: https://www.travelspring.de/staedtereise-rom/
Don't worry if you don't speak german. You can easily translate the article in any other language via google translate.
I hope you enjoy it!
