Death of Mussolini, Reformation and LegacyWhat factors led to the fall of the Salo Republic and the fall of Mussolini in 1945? We look at the destruction of the Salo Republic, civil war between Italian forces in the North, and the capture and execution of Mussolini. How was Italy reformed after 1945 and what have been the long term consequences of the choices made between 1945 and 1946 following the death of Mussolini? We look at the outcomes of the referendum and elections in 1946. And, finally, what is the lasting legacy of fascism in both Italy and the world in general? We consider the historical and political impact of the fascist regime on both Italian and world politics.
