Ottavio Corgini, one of the founders of Reggio Emilia’s fascist party section, then Undersecretary of Agriculture in the first government led by Mussolini, was one of the most prominent characters of the regime before his resounding break in May 1923 that caused his removal from the government and, shortly after, from the Fascist Party. His dissidence is usually compared to Alfredo Misuri’s, with whom he led the association «Patria e Libertà». However, an in-depth study of his personality shows his specific kind of political creed, where extreme economic liberalism was combined with severe ethics aiming to accustom people to work and sacrifice, not excluding violent means.
