 Sabaudia (Lazio), 1934 -- some facts
During the Fascist era several new towns were built in Italy and its colonies, in addition to all the renewal projects that were executed in the cities.
To inhabit the area, the Fascists wanted war veterans, but very many of the new colonists were in reality troublesome anti-fascists, nominated to be sent south to a new destiny in the Pontine Marshes by local authorities in the north, grasping the opportunity to get rid of unwanted elements in their own society.
It is a symbol of power, and to the Italians it played on their history as well, eager as they were to tie the bonds to their once so glorious past, and prepare the way for the new and glorious Empire -- an Empire Mussolini hoped would measure up to his hero Augustus' Empire.

 The Book of THoTH (Leaves of Wisdom) - Fascism
Today, very few groups proclaim themselves fascist, and the term is often used to describe individuals or political groups who are perceived to behave in an authoritarian or totalitarian manner; by silencing opposition, judging personal behavior, promoting racism, or otherwise attempting to concentrate power and create hate towards the "enemies of the state".
The Fascist movement, on the other hand, sought to preserve the class system and uphold it as the foundation of established and desirable culture, although this is not to say that Fascists rejected the concept of social mobility.
This war became a proxy war between the fascist countries and their international supporters — who backed Francisco Franco — and the worldwide Communist movement allied uneasily with anarchists and Trotskyists — who backed the Popular Front — and were aided chiefly by the Soviet Union.

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: )
While most countries support nationalism, the fascist state “requires more than the mere patriotism that every nation promotes, for fascists make intense demands on people to support national symbols above everything else.” This intense nationalism leads citizens to believe that their society, culture, ethnicity, and even race is superior to that of any other.
Fascists are seen as radically right leaning, and communists on the radical left are their natural adversaries.
The Ancient Roman symbol of power and authority was the fasces, an ax bound in a bundle of rods.

 Sabaudia Online - Fascist symbolism
As is a well-known fact, the fascist symbol par excellence, is the lictor's ax.
It is a symbol of power, and to the Italians it played on their history as well, eager as they were to tie the bonds to their once so glorious past, and prepare the way for the new and glorious Empire -- an Empire Mussolini hoped would measure up to his hero Augustus' Empire.
The lictor's ax came to be used everywhere, as columns on exhibition buildings, or towers on the different buildings of the regime (most typical the children's colonies and the case del fascio) could be shaped as this ax.

 Spain
Francisco Franco, the leader of the Fascist regime, came out victorious due in part to support from Hitler.
Although he was indebted to him, Franco never entered the war on the side of the Axis.
In fact, as the war started moving in the direction of the Allies, Franco dropped much of his Fascist symbolism, and imprisonment and execution in Spain dropped off dramatically.

 Neonazi flag symbolism
The texts about this symbol [the so called hurricane on the P.N.S.S. flag] illustrate quite well the interesting phenomenon of neonazi symbology worldwide: The flags, symbols, salutes, etc. are clearly influenced by Hitler and Mussolini and based on them — however the “official” explanations refer most everything except that fact.
The celtic cross is probably the most popular symbol among (seemingly not only) european neonazis, even more than the traditional swastika (but that’s maybe because the swastika is banned or has its use “protected” in many countries).
I suspect that the present users care less for the actual symbolism involved than they value its similarity to the swastika design, and substitute it for a swastika when such a design is illegal.

 VN Boards - Fascism ftw!
Fascists are pushed towards conservatism by common hatred of socialism and feminism, but are prepared to override conservative interests - family, property, religious, the universities, the civil service - where the interests of the nation are considered to require it.
Fascist radicalism also derives from a desire to assuage discontent by accepting specific demands of the labour and women's movements, so long as these demands accord with the national priority.
In 1935, as fascist political movements were making gains across Europe and often took violent action against communist organizations, it became important for Marxists to have an exact definition of "fascism" in order to determine precisely who they were fighting.

 AGNI | Essay | Online | 'Where Does Collaboration with Fascist Aesthetics Begin and End?' by Anis Shivani
Avant-garde art is as complicit in the rise of the fascist revolutionary aesthetic today as it has been historically.
Certain strains of aesthetic modernism explicitly glorify violence, as a necessary means of disrupting bourgeois conformity; both historically and in the present, fascism could hardly be expected to find better stylistic support, although of course where the artistic visionaries would want to overturn existing (and outmoded) class relations, fascism seeks to give them new legitimacy.
More problematic for a resurrection of modernity that would attack the fascist aesthetic, the high priests of postmodernism deny the possibility of the autonomy of art—or politics.

 FASCISM IS SOCIALISM - Fascist symbols of National Socialism, Communism, Nazism, Third Reich exposed by Dr. Rex Curry ...
As German socialism's notorious flag symbol, the swastika was deliberately turned 45 degrees to the horizontal and always oriented in the S-direction.
When Mussolini chose the ancient Roman fasces as a symbol of his socialist group, he was at the same time playing with the similarity of the words fascio and fasces, choosing an ancient symbol, and drawing a parallel between it and the socialists who had banded together, spellbound by Mussolini's leadership.
Perhaps it is appropriate that the symbol of government is a symbol of thievery and totalitarianism.

Rather than Pearce controlling the symbolism he is using, the symbolism controls him - as long ago as January 1984 he had to sack his song writing partner Tony Wakeford from DIJ for getting involved with Patrick Harrington and the Strasserite faction of the National Front.
I would stress symbols and imagery in all this, both Crisis and DIJ were aesthetically overloaded to the detriment of both their politics and their music.
The evolution of the fascist fraction Wakeford involved himself with is instructive.

 Army fascist? at blogdisease.com
The word fascism stems from the Italian word fascio (plural: fasci), which may mean bundle, as in a political or militant group, or a nation.
The term also comes from the fasces (rods bundled around an axe), which was an ancient Roman symbol of the authority of magistrates.
The symbolism of the fasces suggested strength through unity; a single rod is easily broken, while the bundle is very difficult to break.
