La Vittoria del Grano: The battle of the grain, or National Competition for the victory of the grain, was a campaign launched by Benito Mussolini in order to achieve self-sufficiency of wheat production in Italy. The idea behind this propaganda was that the increase in food production would "free the Italian people from the enslavement of foreign bread", and lead Italy into becoming self-sufficient. The program hoped to unify the people through nationalistic spirit.
