  • Description

    Full titles read: "Italy's Victory Leader - The King, Mussolini and enormous crowd at imposing funeral of Marshal Dias in Rome."

    Rome, Italy.

    High angle L/Ss show a huge military procession through Rome as part of the funeral of Marshal Dias. The coffin is carried up several flights of steps to a huge memorial; Mussolini may possibly be seen in L/S, walking next to the coffin in these shots but it is difficult to be 100% sure. L/S of the enormous crowd. L/S of the coffin, surrounded by soldiers, at the memorial. L/S of the crowd walking slowly past the memorial and saluting.

    Note: although the titles mention Benito Mussolini and the King (Victor Emmanuel III) they do not seem to be in any of the footage here.
