The 1922 Turin Massacre refers to the attack by Italian Fascists against members of a local labour movement in Turin, Italy. The events began in Turin after Fascists raided and burned down of a trade union headquarters and attacks on two clubs of the Italian Socialist Party. This was followed by Fascists taking a number of editors of the newspaper of the Communist Party of Italy hostage, taking them to the central park in Turin and threatening to execute them. Fascists rounded up communists and trade unionists in the city and executed a number of them in gruesome manners with one victim being tied and dragged behind a truck until he died and another victim being bludgeoned to death. Eleven people were killed and ten were seriously wounded by the Fascists.
