Who was Serafino Mazzolini?
Mazzolini was born in Arcevia, in the Marche. He founded a nationalist group in Macerata, and soon became editor of the daily newspaper L'Unione. An active irredentist and advocate of Italy's entry into World War I, he was a volunteer soldier in 1915, and was awarded a War Merit Cross. In 1918, Mazzolini returned to Ancona and was deputy editor of L'Ordine newspaper, interrupting his assignment in order to join Gabriele D'Annunzio as the latter attempted to seize Fiume for an "unredeemed" Italy.
A member of the provincial council in Ancona, he took part in the March on Rome of 1922, and a year later joined the Partito Nazionale Fascista - becoming one of its leaders as of 1924-1925. A deputy secretary for the PNF, he contributed to its Propaganda Office, represented it in the Italian Chamber of Deputies from 1924 on, and was awarded a supervisory position as member of the Grand Council of Fascism.
