Try Zeffirelli's Tea with Mussolini for starters.

This sounds like a fascinating topic-I hope your student pursues it.
I'm aware of a couple of articles about Nazi use of Shakespeare, but
haven't seen anything specifically about Shakespeare in Fascist Italy.
Your student might want to check out *Fascism and Theatre: Comparative
Studies on the Aesthetics and Politics of Performance in Europe,
1925-1945* (1996; Gunter Berghaus, ed.).  It might provide some leads.

It may be to the side of your real aim, but several major productions of
recent decades have used fascist Italy (or a nameless but recognizable
surrogate) as a setting. Others will remember more than I can, but the
production of Romeo at the RSC (about 1988?) and one early in this
decade at the Stratford Festival in Canada-and available on video-use
such settings.
