    ~ A Set Of Five B&W Photographs Of The Execution Of Benito Mussolini ~


    This is a fascinating set of printed photos depicting the aftermath of the execution of Mussolini, his mistress and several leading fascists.

    Mussolini and his mistress, Claretta Petacci, were captured on 27 April 1945 by local partisans near the village of Dongo on Lake Como. Mussolini and Petacci were shot the following afternoon. After the execution, the bodies of Mussolini and Petacci were taken to Milan and left in the town square of Piazzale Loreto, for a large angry crowd to insult and physically abuse. They were then, along with several other leading fascists, hung upside down from a metal girder above a service station on the square for the crowd to see.

    The set includes: A picture of Mussolini and Petacci lying together after the execution but before their bodies were abused, a picture of some of the bodies lying in the square, a close up shot of Mussolini and Petacci hanging in the square and two photographs of the group hanging while the crowd, including several American G.I’s look on.

    The pictures were sold in Italy at the time of their deaths.

    They were purchased of a lady of Italian descent whose father, a soldier, Giovanna Gramagla was present at the event.

    They all have ’28-April 1945’ written lightly in pencil to the reverse.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The pictures measure 3 ½ inches (9cm) by 2 ¼ inches (5.7cm).

    ~ Condition ~

    The photographs are in very good condition for their age with minimal wear, although two of them do have a little creasing.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £8 or they can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
