    Benito Mussolini, founder of the Italian Fascism, was executed by a firing squad by Italian communists. After being shot, kicked, and spat upon, the bodies of Mussolini, his mistress Clara Petacci, and three other executed fascists were hung upside down from the roof of an Esso gas station. The bodies were then stoned by civilians from below in an act of revenge for the hanging of many partisans in the same place by Axis authorities.
