Claretta Petacci
Original name: Claretta da Musocco
Birth: Feb. 28, 1912
Rome
Provincia di Roma
Lazio, Italy
Death: Apr. 28, 1945
Mezzegra
Provincia di Como
Lombardia, Italy

Benito Mussolini's mistress, (Clara was 29 years younger than he was) she was shot in the chest by partisan's in Mezzegra Italy and died as she tried to defend him with her body. He was exectued immediately afterward. The following day, their bodies along with 5 other of the 13 party leaders executed were hung upside down at an Esso gas station in Milan and then beaten beyond recognition by an angry mob. (60 years ago - 4/29/1945-4/29/2005) The photos of that event have a haunting effect to this day. Her body was believed to have been buried in an unmarked grave next to El Duce's. The Italian public apparently remembers her without reference to politics, and only as a woman in love who did not abandon her man in times of trouble. (bio by: db)
