After the fall of the Fascist regime in Italy on 25 July 1943, on the orders of the king, Mussolini was arrested by the Carabinieri. The Germans did not view the Carabinieri as loyal to the fascist cause. They disarmed the force and began the deportation of 8,000 officers to Germany for forced labour. Subsequently, large numbers of Carabinieri joined the Italian resistance movement to fight German and Italian fascists.
The stencil is 90mm tall and 90mm wide and is suitable for hand or spray painting. Like all our stencils it is reusable many times!
