Just for the record: the article mentions that Crimethinc. purposefully reinterprets 'fascist' Gabrielle D'Annunzio as an anarchist. He was not, in fact, a fascist. His lived the majority of his life pursuing various endeavours such as writing poetry, novels and plays, theatre production and a military career before and during the time of World War One, before the emergence of fascism as an ideology. He was elderly by the time Mussolini came to power in Italy, and died shortly thereafter, concerned in the last years of his life only with his museum. He is mistakenly identified with fascism only because Mussolini used him to promote his own ideology. Crimethinc. is, ironically, correct in reconfiguring him an anarchist.
