The Italian invasion is a key event in the defeat of the Fascist dictatorship in Italy. The Allied troops, led by Dwight D. Eisenhower, landed in the south of the country, and even if they had some difficulties at the beginning due to the presence of lots of mountains, they managed to seize rome on June 4 1944. Then they moved to the Gothic line, the last defense of the nazi-fascist state which had been created in the northern part of Italy. When the allies broke the Gothic line, in April 1945, Italy was eventually set free and Mussolini was executed.
