  • Description

    Unused / unissued material - no paperwork - dates unclear or unknown.

    Rome, Italy. German voiceover.

    View of the memorial to King Victor Emmanuel. People walk up to what looks like a smelting pot and drop things into it (gold rings I think). Benito Mussolini (Il Duce) is collecting gold and silver jewellery from women.

    Workmen using lathes and files make rings form steel.

    CU of people exchanging their gold and silver rings for steel ones (presumably as a donation to the Italian economy).
