Ambassador of the Third Reich

  • Gregor Schöllgen
Part of the St Antony's book series

Abstract

On 8 November 1932 Hassell took up his position as ambassador in Rome, thus representing the interests of the German Reich in Italy for the third time. The situation had changed radically since March 1921, when he had last left the Italian capital. The March on Rome had ended in triumph for Mussolini. With his appointment as minister president on 30 October 1922, fascist rule had been consolidated. At the end of 1932 the domestic position of the ‘Duce’ was more or less unchallenged.
