In 1921, "Il Popolo d'Italia" called on an outstanding artist to work as their illustrator. At the time, Mario Sironi (1885-1961) was already contributing his work to different newspapers. His experience and trademark style were so strong that Mussolini, editor of the newspaper, counted on gaining support through the artist's powerful and satirical illustrations. Every day until 1925, and less frequently until 1942, the year before the fall of Fascism and the closing of the newspaper, Sironi made satirical drawings of a rare intensity. This book documents 317 works on paper, 67 of them are published here for the first time.
