Mussolini did not surrender, he was removed from office by the Grand Fascist Council, arrested, and later freed by German special forces led by Otto Skorzeny. He was then made leader of the Italian Social Republic in the north, until his murder at the hands of communist partisans towards the end of the war.

On September 8th 1943, Italy rose against Mussolini and formed the "Kingdom Of Italy" however, 14 days later on September 22nd, Mussolini and his followers formed the RSI or Italian Social Republic in order to continue their fight. When Mussolini was killed on April 25th 1945 the Italian Social Republic surrendered on April 29th. Three days later Berlin was captured and Germany fell.

Where did Italy surrender?

There was no real place of surrender. The Italian Government ousted Mussolini in July 1943 and tried to negotiate a peace with the Allies. After the Allied army landed at the "toe" of Italy the first week of September and they detected a naval invasion force headed towards Salerno, they agreed to surrender on 8 September 1943.But it was too late. The Germans began occupying their country and fighting on their land. The war in Italy continued until May 2, 1945 when the GERMAN leaders signed a surrender. I think they met secretly in Switzerland to agree on a surrender. The formal signing was at Caseratta, the Headquarters of the Allies in Italy.
