La testa di ferro
 
«Fiumanism = the Italian city of Fiume – city of new life – liberation of all the oppressed (peoples, classes, individuals) - discipline of the spirit against formal discipline – destruction of all hegemonies, dogmas, conservatisms and parasitisms – crucible for new energies – few words, much substance».

This is the phrase that often appeared on the publication «La testa di ferro».


La testa di ferro was the newspaper that Mario Carli published in Fiume throughout 1920, considered the unofficial organ of the Command of Fiume. The opinions expressed by Carli in this newspaper were so radical and unorthodox that in the end the Command asked him to move the publication to Milan, despite praise from D’Annunzio himself.
 
In “La testa di ferro”, the legionnaire Alessandro Forti gave a clear description of the new task facing intellectuals: “[…] if the intellectual proletariat manages to understand the times and support the manual proletariat in its struggle for emancipation […] it will no longer find itself in the dangerous and humiliating position of buffer between capitalism and labour.”
