Momma vs. Mussolini

book cover image A Bold and Dangerous Family

The Rosselli family were part of Italy's elite. Led by their fierce matriarch, Amelia, however, they were also vocal anti-fascists. Caroline Moorhead tells their inspiring, true story.

As Mussolini rose to power in Italy, the Rossellis took leading roles in the rebellion against him, a stance that few in their class would risk. And when Il Duce established a police state, the Rossellis and their friends transformed themselves into activists.
