Series cast summary:
 Benito Mussolini (3 episodes, 1993)


The story starts at the point in Benito Mussolini's life when, at the age of nineteen, he gave up being a schoolmaster, left his home town of Forli and, as a guest worker on a building-site in Lausanne, Switzerland, underwent his own personal experience of the darker sides of the capitalist system. The speed with which the rhetorically gifted demagogue manages to assemble whole crowds of friends and followers around him - including above all his "protectress", the enigmatic Russian woman Angelika - is reflected in the speed at which he succeeds in attracting enemies from church and state. His love for the beautiful Eleonora, the daughter of a middle-class family, studying medicine at the University of Geneva - a city where Mussolini himself has been carrying stone around as an unskilled worker - even convinces him to take up studying. When a fatal accident occurs on the building-site - a worker plunges to his death from a badly-secured section of scaffolding - the young student ... Written by Anonymous

Banderas and Cerami
15 February 2003 | by (Naples, Italy) – See all my reviews

This very good italian TV fiction has been showed just once in the italian network (RAI) in 1993 end no more forward. In 1993 Banderas was a good but not yet very famous actor, and so was the screenplayer Vincenzo Cerami ("La Vita è Bella", "Pinocchio"). The movie tells about the Benito Mussolini's life before the Fascism, when he was socialist and the director of the newspaper "Avanti!".
