Default Re: ARE THEY WHO THEY SAY THEY ARE? And that is...?

Fasci were the bunch of sticks around an axe that were carried by the lictors before a Roman magistrate with some kind of mandate. It meant he carried the power of Rome to do something.
Mussolini used the fasci as a symbol because he was into reviving the Roman Empire glory to Italy...(grin)
