The Argentine Fascist Party (Partido Fascista Argentino, PFA) was a fascist political party in Argentina from 1932 until its official disbandment in 1936, when it was succeeded by the National Fascist Union (Union Nacional Fascista, UNF).[1] Founded by Italian Argentines,[2] the party was formed as a breakaway faction from Argentina's National Fascist Party (Partido Nacional Fascista, PNF).[3] It was based upon Italian Fascism and was recognized by Benito Mussolini's Italian National Fascist Party in 1935.[4] In the 1930s the party became a mass organization, particularly in Córdoba.[5] Nicholás Vitelli led the PFA's branch in Córdoba until his death in 1934, whereafter Nimio de Anquín took the leadership of the party.[6] The PFA's main political allies in Córdoba were the Argentine Civic Legion and the Nationalist Action of Argentina/Affirmation of a New Argentina movement.[7]
