Mussolini wasn't Italian head of state, he was the dictator and Prime Minister.

And about him fighting Mafia most effectively than others, all historians and experts disagree. His regime fought Mafia during 4 years, with good results. Then, he announced "victory", and no more actions followed (even if policemen knew that it was, at least, a partial victory).
