Abstract: In this article, Giovanni Bonello studies the emergence of fascism in Malta. First, he demonstrates the rejection of the British influence : "This started changing halfway through the British occupation. The majority of Maltese were rejecting any coerced British influence". Then, he explains how the 'Comitato d'azione maltese' was created on June 7, 1940. Its aim was to foster unity among the pro-Italian Maltese in Italy and assist them in any needs and spread the ideal of 'irredentismo' through culture and propaganda. The propaganda activities of the 'Comitato d'azione' included the printing of postcards with a Malta theme and other publicity material. 8 of these rare posters are reproduced in the article.
