But the names, are they the same as them here?
Pietro Badoglio: Head of the Italian government
Italo Balbo: Minister of Air and Governor of Libya
Galeazzo Ciano: Italian Foreign Minister
Emilio De Bono: Member of the Italian Grand Council
Dino Grandi: Member of the Italian Grand Council
Benito Mussolini: Italian Duce
Victor Emmanuel III: King of Italy
Was they punished, did they remain in power or was it just western propaganda?
What did Mussolini do when he heard about it?
The anarchist movement, was it a factor to count?

That Irish woman was Violet Gibson. She was, according to her, on a mission of God. The Carbinieri was just in time to save from a lynching crowd and Mussolini sent her back to Ireland (or England). This was in 1925, I think.
There were more attempts on his life:
- A 16-year old wanted to shoot Mussolini (the boy was lynched and ripped apart by the crowd).
- A bomb exploded just after his car drove by.
- A (I believe socialist) sniper was just arrested before he could shoot.
I thought that there were some more cases. Mussolini was one lucky fellow.

I also need specific dates of the attempts and some input of how close it was and then I could use it for the events.
The timeframe of the game is from 1936 so everything before that I cant use.
Another thing that could make the game more intresting is if there were some misstakes done about the industrialisation and the militarybuildup in Italy (or good things), then I could put it in a event where the player can choose the path, do as Mussolini or dont. for good or worse.

The communist party looked at Mussolini's health, by Stalin's orders, since 1932 as the Italian and Soviet partnership (first of all in naval maters) was too much important for USSR. Any anti-fascist plot, so, was put in jeopardy by the direct line between the PCI and the OVRA.
Guido Leto (the deputy chief of the Italian police) stated that Galeazzo Ciano (the son of Costanzo) had plotted to poison his father in law (with Himmler support) in Autumn 1939. The young foreign minister had not the gut, anyway, to go on.
The question about the industrial "sliding doors" and choices is, anyway, quite interesting.
May you be a little more specific?

This I dont understand, who did they vote for?
This is the classic whatif scenario, what if they gave some corporates the task to produce a weaponsystem earlier or maybe an industrialefficencyprogram.
Or some replacement in power Like putting an "Albert Speer" inhead of the Italian industrialdepartment.
