Vittorio Mussolini was the second son of Benito Mussolini, but the first officially acknowledged son. Vittorio Mussolini served with the Regia Aeronautica during the Italo-Ethiopian War and the Spanish Civil War. Vittorio Mussolini became an object of derision after describing aerial bombs as "budding roses" when they exploded amongst Ethiopian tribesmen. Postwar he became a respected film producer and critic involved with Roman film studio Cinecittà. In order for the clippings to be gathered from so many sources a major effort would have been undertaken with the layout and design, especially with the gold trim and leather scrollwork, suggesting a personal touch for the intended recipient(s). Salvaged from the wreck of the ¿City of Lincoln ¿ off the Cape Coast in 1947, this album has been with the same family since. 'The City of Lincoln¿ had sailed from the U.K. "A fishing boat was used by the custom officials to transport the valuable cargo from the wreck to the settlement of Buffeljag. Apart from a cargo worth 2 million pounds, there were 13 new Dodge and Plymouth cars on board. These cars were purchased for the visit of the English Royal family that was to take place in 1947. Several of these cars had been thrown overboard." "Duskant die Duine" Jan Fourie, describes the salvage of the ¿City of Lincoln¿. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
