It’s also known as the Italian Social Republic. The Republic of Salò was a puppet state in Italy controlled by Mussolini. The country was recognized only by Germany, Japan and other countries of the Nazi unit and substantial support of German troops was required to maintain the control over it. Government of the Republic of Salò argued that they own the whole northern part of Italy and Rome, but, in fact, its management was carried out from the small town of Salò, located near Lake Garda to the east of Milan.
