This dual policy was followed throughout 1922. In the spring Fascist squads rampaged through north-central Italy attacking Socialist town councils and trade union property. In May the town council of Bologna was actually driven out of office. During July street-fighting took place in most of the northern cities.

He believed that he could achieve power without a coup, but by considering such action he could keep his more radical supporters happy, and intimidate the Liberals into making concessions.
