Radiosomaggismo

Radiosomaggismo

Radiosomaggismo (Italian for the "Radiant days of May") refers to the May 1915 crisis in Italy when crowds mobilized in Rome when it seemed Giovanni Giolitti, Prime Minister of Italy five times between 1892 and 1921, might return to the government. This has been argued as a possible reason for Italy's entry into World War I, which occurred on May 24 1915. It is also argued as an event that lead to the creation of Fascism, and the rise of Benito Mussolini.
