A good essay; thanks for linking it. For anyone interested, there is an excellent -- and very thorough -- book covering Bartali's life: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.ca/bo.../9780385669504

Sports were incredibly important to Il Duce, who is said to have proclaimed his intention to turn Italy from a nation of mandolin players into one of warriors.
