A letter written to the Italian Trotskyists in 1930 in which Trotsky deals
with the question of the Constituent Assembly and the perspectives for Italy at

Constituent Assembly with that of workers' soviets, and also showed incredible
insight into how the process would unfold once the Mussolini regime collapsed.
