Example text

67 There are curious echoes of this theme in a brilliant essay on fascism under the title ‘Between festival and revolution’. 68 Tarchi concludes by suggesting the attempt to bring about a temporal revolution through creating a national community is the definitional feature of generic fascism: The choice of the qualitative and organic community [ . . 69 But north of the Alps too, neo-fascism is profoundly preoccupied with breaking out of ‘profane time’. One of the most important books in the renewal of fascist thought in Germany, France, and Italy is The Conservative Revolution: A Handbook.

The core of his own revolutionary drive between 1909 – when his profound attraction to La Voce’s call for cultural renewal can be first documented25 – and the formation of the first Fasci in March 1919 was little more than the nebulous myth of a new Italy brought about through the agency of ‘homines novi’ (‘new men’). 26 The tablets of the old law were crumbling and the new ones had yet to be written. 27 His conspicuous lack of interest in providing a definitive doctrine and a cogent set of policies to ‘rationalise’ Fascism before the early 1930s was not just tactically necessary in order to guarantee the new regime as wide a support base as possible.

The Risorgimento would be completed, the task of ‘making Italians’ finally fulfilled. Ordinary citizens would, for the first time since the Roman era, once more be able to ‘I am no longer human. I am a Titan. ’ 13 participate mystically in Italy and hence, in its imminent destiny, to become once again the focal point of world civilisation and progress – yet another manifestation of the ‘eternal genius’ of the race producing the Roman Empire, the Catholic Church, and the Renaissance. In the context of such a vision the ‘monumental’ – such a major feature of Fascist (and all totalitarian) art – acquires specific connotations.
