Was there ever a designated successor to Mussolini as Duce?

Did Mussolini have a designated successor at any stage?

Was there any post ressembling a "Sub-Duce"?

Was there any legal apparatus to govern any possible succession?

Many thanks,

No, Sid.
Maybe, in the eventuality in which Mussolini had died and the Fascism was still on command, I think that, as often in Italy, the fact had open a crisis between the majors of the party.
