Republic of Salò Collection

This extensive collection comprises propaganda produced under the auspices of the Repubblica sociale italiana (R.S.I.) during the Second World War. Commonly known as the Republic of Salò, this virtual puppet-state was established in Northern Italy by Mussolini’s German allies in the wake of the Allied liberation of the South. The collection includes hundreds of leaflets, broadsides, handbills, fliers, and other forms of printed propaganda, many of which display vitriolic and hateful anti-Semitic and racist imagery used in attacks against the Allied “invaders.”
