This manuscript seeks to define the mechanisms of appropriation and use of Sport and Press as legitimation and propaganda means carried out along the interwar years by fascist and francoist regimes. A historical comparison between Benito Mussolini and Francisco Franco and also between their ideologies and behaviors was needed. In order to do so archive documents and periodicals of that period, in Italy and Spain, as well as the most important scholar researches on the topic have been analyzed. The aim is to get a relevant and innovative historiographical contribution.
