Germany was split in two and the winners demanded a lot of payments for the war (colonies, coal mines, money...) which Germany was, of course, unable to pay. Italy was expecting some benefits with joining the allies in the war, and the benefits were little. The new division of Europe was badly done, the same with the former possessions of the Ottoman Empire and the former colonies losers. So, the allies were demanding too much from the not-winners which create unhappiness between the population who make right-wing dictatorships possible.
