Acquapendente – Elena Curti, the natural daughter of Benito Mussolini, died in Acquapendente. As the Huffington post reports. She was almost a hundred years old, she was born on October 19, 1922, a few days before the march on Rome.

Elena Curti was the daughter of the Milanese seamstress, but originally from Lodi, Angela Cucciati who had an affair with Mussolini, not yet Duce, in 1921. The woman met Mussolini in Milan to solicit the release of her husband, the fascist Bruno Curti, arrested for a brawl with some comrades, one of whom had also shot. Mussolini in the following years met her several times in a hotel in Rome.

To Elena Curti, who was the daughter of the Duce, her mother Angela revealed it to him. “I was already 20 years old – says Elena Curti -. He confessed it to me point blank one evening after dinner. I asked her if Mussolini was informed of this. “Yes, sure, but he prefers that you don’t know for now,” he replied. From that day on, I spent whole days questioning myself in front of the mirror with photos of the Duce and my dad ”.

Mussolini wanted to meet her during the period of the Italian Social Republic and met her every Thursday in Salò. He was in Pavolini’s office.
Claretta Petacci, Mussolini’s lover, thought that the blonde girl was a new flame of his to the Duce, and told him to send her away. But on April 27, 1945, during Dongo’s escape, there was Elena and not Claretta next to Mussolini in the armored car in the first part of the journey.
Only later did Claretta Petacci, with Mussolini disguised as a German soldier, get on a truck.

Elena Curti was arrested after the war and spent five months in prison. He later went to Spain and then returned to Italy.

There are many controversies about the fact that Elena Curti was really the daughter of the Duce after the war.

“I have never claimed to be the secret daughter of the Duce, even if my mother and Benito Mussolini himself suspected it. But I don’t see why after so many years I should be flaunting this paternity right now, ”Elena Curti told agencies in 1998.

The death of Elena Curti took place in recent days in Acquapendente.
