ich suche nach dem Gebäude, in dem das Comando Supremo ab 12. Dezember 1942 untergebracht war.
Die Zeit zuvor hatte es sein Büro im Palazzo delle Ricerche, später im Palazzo Vidoni in Roma.
Bitte lassen Sie mich wissen, wenn Sie mir weiterhelfen können.
My current theory is that the S.M.G. and the S.M.R.E. were co-located in the same building. Before the war, the S.M.G. was quite small and more of a secretariat than a functional headquarters.
Ceva in his La condotta italiana della guerra has a diagram of the Comando Supremo office (yes, a single room, p.35) in 1942. In that room are all three reparti of the S.M.G. That got me digging through the documents that established the S.M.G. In the original document authorizing the S.M.G. (Legge 8 giugno 1925, n.866 also found in Ceva pp.129–132), Article 7 states 'For the execution of the studies and the issuing of the provisions inherent to his assignment, the Chief of the General Staff has the General Staff of the Royal Army'. In the Section "Del Consiglio dell'esercito" it states 'The Army General Staff is directly dependent on the Chief of the General Staff for the execution of the functions referred to in the previous art. 7'.
As the S.M.G. depends on the S.M.R.E. to provide the staff work for the office, it would make sense that the S.M.G. is co-located with the S.M.R.E. It would also explain why a location for Comando Supremo is not mentioned.
The Stato Maggiore del Regio Esercito and the Comando Superiore del Regio Esercito (Superesercito) was located in Palazzo Esercito in Rome (Via XX Settembre, 123) and moved to Monterotondo (in the castle and some palaces; codename "Centro Marte") since May 1943.
Jeff, thank you! I have got these information from several books and articles read, honestly I couldn't point to any one specific. Surely some articles or books by Lucio Ceva and the book "La storia nascosta" by Badoglio's relative Vanna Vailati, and a recent article on "Storia Militare" about the German attack on Monterotondo after the armistice of 8 September 1943.
