    Default My Grandfather in Balilla Fascist Youth Organization Uniform

    I just came across this picture and wanted to share it with you guys. It's a photo of my Nonno in Balilla uniform with my great aunt Anastasia. He lived in Petilia Policastro in Calabria southern Italy. I think this picture was taken sometime in the mid to late 1930s.



    What do you think?

    Do you know if he kept his uniform?It means he was in the group of 8-14 years old.
    Iv been searching for information about the italian fascist youth uniform for the past few weeks, and still couldnt find much.
    I would love to have one of those uniforms.

    Ps: In the Portuguese fascist youth, the equivalent was called" Lusito", 7-10 years old.
    Take a look at this thread i have created, being a teacher, i think you would like this thread.

    I highly doubt the uniform is in the USA, although there is a slight chance that it is stored at our family house in Italy. I will be making a trip in exactly a month. I'll ask around...

    I will check out that thread, thanks!
