While Italy was being overrun, Mussolini and his mistress at the time attempted to flee to Switzerland. At the border, Mussolini was recognized and shot, being killed. His, and Clara Petacci's, body was then transferred and hung upside down in Milan. In which the public mutilated the bodies to an indistinguishable extent; shooting, stabbing, throwing vegetables, urinating on, and kicked. Mussolini's face was completely disfigured by the end. The picture is Mussolini and Petacci hanging.
