Abstract

Quand Hitler, lui, a déjà programmé l'homme nouveau de Mein Kampf, Mussolini rêve de marcher sur l'océan: l'Italie fasciste sera un des grands du 21e siècle. Mais comment forger l'homme totalitaire qui accomplira cette fruste vision de géopolitique, si l'on s'obstine à exalter le soldat-laboureur à l'ancienne? A moins que, la guerre aidant... /// Mussolini's vision of the future was primarily a banal imperialist plan: fascist Italy would break out of the bars of the "Mediterranean prison" and would surge forward, great among the greats of the 21st century, on to the ocean and towards India. Already in 1937, in a draft by "Il Duce, Europa 2000," there were totalitarian omens: the appeal for more births and the plan of "cultural revolution" were meant to fashion a "new man". But how could the very conservative official ideal of an Imperial Roman soldier-laborer be reconciled with the indispensable futurism of such geopolitics? Only war, Mussolini thought, could resolve this contradiction.
