Mussolini had diaries buried before capture

Diaries, documents and letters belonging to Benito Mussolini are hidden in a secret location near the Swiss border, Nick Squires reports.
The Italian dictator allegedly gave them to a senior aide, Guglielmo Della Morte, days before he was executed.
His son, Rocco Della Morte, claims his father told him about the location of the diaries in 1954, and swore him to secrecy, ordering that the location not be disclosed until 2025.
He said he decided to reveal the story now because he is 74 years old and the information would otherwise die with him. (© The Daily Telegraph)
