The RSI became so desperate for soldiers that it granted convicts freedom if they would join the army and the sentence of death was imposed on anyone who opposed being conscripted. Borghese held no allegiance to Mussolini and even suggested that he would take him prisoner if he could. During the winter of —, armed Italians were on both sides of the Gothic Line.
On the Allied side were four Italian groups of volunteers from the old Italian army. These Italian volunteers were equipped and trained by the British. On the Axis side were four RSI divisions. This was a combined German and Italian offensive against the 92nd Infantry Division. The battle was fought in the Apennines. While limited in scale, this was a successful offensive and the RSI units did their part.
The Italians successfully halted the United States division's advance.
However, the situation continued to deteriorate for the Axis forces on Gothic Line. In the end of that month, the last remaining troops of RSI were bottled up along with two Wehrmacht Divisions at Collecchio by 1st Brazilian Division being forced to surrender after some days of fighting. On 29 April, Graziani surrendered and was present at Caserta when a representative of German General Heinrich von Vietinghoff-Scheel signed the unconditional instrument of surrender for all Axis forces in Italy, but since the Allies had never recognised the RSI Graziani's signature was not required at Caserta.
In , after the withdrawal of all German fighter units in the attempt to stop the increased Allied offensive on the German mainland, ANR fighter groups were left alone and heavily outnumbered to face the massive Allied air offensive over Northern Italy. In the operation time of and , the ANR managed to shoot down Allied aircraft with the loss of in action. This was because the bulk of the Italian navy was ordered to steam to Malta at the time of the armistice, out of reach of the Germans and the RSI.
The Black Brigade was formed from the new fascist party members both young and old. Both units fought alongside Nazi and Schutzstaffel SS counterparts in an extensive anti-partisan war. The Black Brigades committed many atrocities in their fight against the Italian resistance movement and political enemies. During the preceding twenty years of Fascist association with the Savoy monarchy of the Kingdom of Italy, the Fascists had been restricted in some of their actions by the monarchy.
The formation of the RSI allowed Mussolini to at last be the official head of an Italian state and it allowed the Fascists to return to their earlier republican stances. Most prominent figures of post-war Italian far-right politics parliamentary or extraparliamentary were in some way associated with the experience of the RSI. Most of the 8, Italian Jews who died under the Holocaust were killed during the 20 months of the Salo Regime. Initially, existing Italian issues were overprinted with a fasces , or the initials "G.
Later the government designed and printed three series, all of which are very common. Banknotes in 50, , , and lire denomination were printed by the Republic. As issuer, the country was not mentioned on them, but rather only the Bank of Italy. It uses the source material as an allegory ; the atrocities in the movie did not actually happen, while most of the choices of milieus, clothing, uniforms, weapons and other details are historically correct.
Bernardo Bertolucci 's Novecento set his story in Emilia , being at the time a province of the Italian Social Republic, even though this is never mentioned in the movie.
