The essay rereads the surgeon Baldo Rossi’s political and cultural actions as rector of the University of Milan between 1926 and 1930. Chosen to replace the founder Luigi Mangia- galli because the fascist government considered him a more suitable figure to follow its directives, Baldo Rossi did not disappoint expectations. During his years, the foundations were laid for the full Fascistisation of university life and with the support of the regime the university quickly became an important reality in the Italian university system. In this con- text, Baldo Rossi’s closeness to Arnaldo Mussolini and Podesta Ernesto Belloni, whose fortunes he shared as well as their political travails, was decisive. In fact, the essay empha- sises how Rossi’s exit from the scene in 1930 was not due to health reasons, but was a res- ponse to the regime’s desire to silence the scandal generated by the conviction of podestà Belloni, a munificent but now suspicious supporter of the Milanese university.
Keywords: Baldo Rossi, University of Milan, Fascistisation of university life, Ernesto Belloni.
