Why did Mussolini march on Rome in October 1922?

0

After a period of riots and the threat of civil war, Mussolini demanded the formation of a Fascist government to restore order. On 29 October 1922, King Victor Emmanuel III invited Mussolini to come to Rome to take power. The ‘march’ was a propaganda used by Mussolini to enlarge his popularity. In fact he and 25,000 Fascist Blackshirts took the train to the city and marched in a ceremonial parade on 31 October.
