In the aftermath of the 25th of April 1945 the so-called Salò’s boys responsible for particularly violent actions had been arrested, put on trial and eventually condemned. The letters written during those few years in prison, which are the object of analysis of this article, allow, for the first time, to follow their reflections after the defeat of the fascist republic. Through this analysis it is possible to find out the lack of any critical reappraisal about their experiences and the continuing ties that linked them with the system of values that formed the base of their choice to fight for the Italian Social Republic headed by Benito Mussolini. Furthermore, the successive militancy in clandestine groups or in the Movimento Sociale Italiano (MSI) allowed a trickling down of their experiences in the ideological patrimony of the Italian neo-fascist movement, building, in this way, an ideal bridge between the RSI and the movement. In fact, from this perspective, they never really came out their war-time experience.
