Italy under Mussolini's dictatorship was not a place where freedom was thought of. All political parties in Italy were suppressed except for the fascists, which Benito Mussolini created himself. For education, many universities were watched very closely, teachers were made to wear uniforms and to teach about the glories of the fascist party. Mussolini also had students enrolled in a program that showed them the glories of war. He also made Italy a totalitarian system of government, which tried to control as many aspects of a person’s life as possible to make the state look as glorious as possible.
