What happend in Italy when Italy surrendered?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

When Italy surrendered the Germans took over,the allied forces continued fighting in Italy and bombing campaigns also continued.There is a lot of folk history regarding the Italian resistance,much of it enhanced ,the one thing true about the results of the war in Italy is that it involved the ousting of the monarchy,of Mussolini and the strong alliance between Italy as a communist state and the USSR.

Still today you find most towns in Italy twinned with ex communist areas of Europe and is one of the main reasons why Italy is not able to move forwards in the modern world as its unions are immersed in the old workers versus the employees mind-frame. restrictive work practice,low wages and overpaid,over powerful union representation have left Italy as a place to do business almost outside consideration. Add the position of its corruption,third in the world, and taxation highest in the world life in Italy does not look to bright today.

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Victor Emmanuel III was born in Naples, Italy, in 1869, the son of King Umberto I, Italy's second reigning monarch. Victor Emmanuel III came to the throne when his father was assassinated at Monza in 1900. He was so small that he was nicknamed the 'dwarf' by Kaiser Wilhelm II. Following the overthrow of Benito Mussolini in July 1943, King Victor Emmanuel handed over his constitutional functions to his son. Victor Emmanuel III withdrew from private life and died in exile in Egypt in 1947. The King's son was made Lieutenant General of the Realm but he left Italy for safety in Egypt. After the war, he returned and was crowned King Umberto II in 1946. A few weeks later a referendum was held to decide the fate of the monarchy. The ballot was in favor of a Republic. The monarchy formally ended on June 12, 1946--- King Umberto II was king for only 33 days.

What was the military strength and weaknesses in Italy during world war 1?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Italy's main strength was its geography - it had a toehold in Libya which was strategically an excellent location to threaten English interests in the Mediterranean. In theory the Italian Navy was an advantage, but the Italian Navy didn't prove to be decisive. Furthermore, Italy was on Germany's southern border which did provide a barrier to entering Germany from Italy.

AnswerItaly was only second best during WWII. Mussolini's dreams of a second Roman Empire were boyish at best. Mussolini did suceed in occupying Ethiopia which caught Hitler's eye and gained respect for Mussolini. This resulted in the non-aggression pact between the two dictators, and created a strong alliance. Mussolini was never completely organized nor completely clear. This was proved by the Italian defeat at the hands of the Greek Army in Albania. The Italians had superior manpower and equipment and still were defeated. So although Italy may have looked strong, they really had no fortified strengths and so further exemplifyied the archetype of appearance vs. reality....

When was Italy first called Italy?

Asked by Wiki User

Prior to modern Italy, there were city states on the Italian peninsula that operated like independent countries and even got into wars with each other sometimes. These included Venice, Milan, Florence, Genoa, Pisa, Siena, Lucca and Cremona. Prior to that, it was the Western Roman Empire. Before the Roman Empire, prior to 7th Century BC, the Etruscans lived on the Italian peninsula and Northern Italy was known as Etruria. The Latins lived south of the Etruscans in what the later Romans called "Old Latium."
