Arnaldo Mussolini was an Italian journalist and politician, and the younger brother of Italy's Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini. He married Augusta Bondanini who bore him three children: Sandro Italico, Vito and Rosina Mussolini. Arnaldo was a teacher and commune secretary with the Italian Socialist Party in Predappio until 1914. Before devoting himself to teaching in his hometown, Arnaldo Mussolini was a professor of agriculture from 1908 to 1909 at the Institute of Falcon-Vial in San Vito al Tagliamento. Then, he took part in World War I, attaining the rank of lieutenant, and in 1919 after the war's end, he moved to Milan, where he became managing director of the newspaper Il Popolo d'Italia. His interest in nature led him also to dedicate himself to environmentalist causes. Arnaldo Mussolini was assigned to manage the interests of Ida Dalser, Benito's "secret mistress" and of their son Benito Albino Dalser, and he treated his nephew in the best possible way. He died suddenly of a heart attack in Milan on December 21, 1931 at only 46 years. He was buried in the small cemetery in Paderno di Mercato Saraceno, birthplace of his wife.
