1. "Approximately 5,000 Italian-Americans gathered about the Italian government building of the Chicago World's Fair for the unveiling of a memorial pillar to Italo Balbo, shown here, Sunday (July 15th). It was the highlight of Italian day at the Fair, with Mayor Edward J. Kelly; Marquis Rossi Longhi, Italian charge d'affairs; Rufus C. Dawes; Giuseppi Castruccio; consul-general; Lt. Gov. Thomas F. Donovan, and other officials present." [Italo Balbo was a fascist general and leader of the Italian Blackshirts and, at the time, a close ally of Benito Mussolini. Balbo arrived at the Century of Progress on a transatlantic flight from Rome, Italy. The City of Chicago subsequently staged a parade and renamed 7th Street 'Balbo Drive' in his honor.]
