The Radio Balilla was a basic, standardized design of a tuned radio frequency receiver in Italy (similar in concept to the German Volsksempfanger). It was made to the same blueprint by various manufacturers (RadioMarelli, CGE, Telefunken, Allocchio Bacchini, Unda Radio, ecc.), and sported a prominent Mussolini fasces on the front grille.
