La Grande Storia: tonight 3 September on Rai 3 with Paolo Mieli
Tonight, Friday 3 September 2021, a new episode of La Grande Storia will be broadcast on Rai 3, the program curated by Paolo Mieli which, through exclusive images, the voices of the protagonists and great historians, takes us to the places that have made the twentieth century and beyond. Tonight’s appointment is entitled “Mussolini Hitler and the others”. Appointment tonight from 21.20 on Rai 3.
The episode broadcast tonight – Friday 3 September 2021 – is entitled “Mussolini Hitler and the others”. As usual in the center the story of the facts that have marked our collective history, of the twentieth century and beyond; of the shadows that hide behind the events and official reconstructions; of the protagonists who have left their mark on the path of history; places that still retain the memory of past history.
Today’s episode, commented as always by Paolo Mieli, deals with the complex and controversial relations between Benito Mussolini’s fascist Italy and the great powers of the time: Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany, the United States of the “roaring” years 20 and then the Great Depression, Stalin’s Soviet Union. The relationship of “almost friendship” between Mussolini and Hitler was decisive for the destiny of Europe and the world. As many as 17 meetings, often public in front of adoring crowds, but also private interviews and extensive correspondence.
Despite the frequent moments of tension and mutual distrust, the Duce and the Führer will remain together until the end. Stalin and Mussolini, on the other hand, never met, but relations between fascist Italy and Soviet Russia were unexpectedly very intense. As early as 1924 Italy was one of the first nations to officially recognize the Soviet Union. The former squadron Italo Balbo is welcomed with all honors in Odessa, Umberto Nobile builds airships for the Soviet state, Agnelli builds the largest ball bearing machine in the world in Moscow. Finally, paradoxical as it may seem, relations between fascist Italy and the United States of America have for a long time been more than cordial.
American journalists for almost 15 years have praised Benito Mussolini, calling him “a driving personality”, “hope for youth”, “the man of the moment”. And the Duce himself did everything to please America. A long idyll that will end only with the wars of Ethiopia and Spain, the racial laws, the alliance with Hitler.
