Il 420 was one of the most important and virulent satirical journals of the Fascist period in Italy. Special targets of the issue shown here are the anti-Fascist exiles on French soil, who are portrayed as terrorists. Carlo Rosselli and his companions had escaped to France and established their movement of resistance just a few months before.
