National Romanian Fascia


National Romanian Fascia

The National Romanian Fascia (Romanian: Fascia Naţională Română) was a small fascist group that was active in Romania for a short time during the 1920s.

Led by Titus Vifor, the group emerged from the short-lived National Fascist Party in 1921 and, at its peak, had around 1,500 members. It defined itself as national socialist, although generally it pursued a policy of corporatism, land reform and support for the creation of agricultural cooperatives.[1] The movement's main areas of influence were Moldavia, Bukovina, and Banat.[2]

The party merged with the National Italo-Romanian Cultural and Economical Movement in 1923 to form the National Fascist Movement, although a small rump movement carried on, with little significance. Both groups shared a close affinity to Italian fascism which facilitated their merger.[3]
