Retrace the history of Fascism in Milan visiting some of the city's monuments associated with the rise and fall of Benito Mussolini. Begin your tour from House of Castani, a baroque palace of the city center, where Mussolini founded the Italian Fasci of Combat, the organization that later turned into the National Fascist Party.
