He needed to forge strong relationships with the church, as the church was very big in Italy, and he could not afford to anger the Roman Catholic Church
Once Mussolini came into power, he tried to forge a good relationship with the pope, by baptising both of his children in 1926 and 1923, as well a renewing his marriage in a church (his initial marriage was just a civil one)
They often clashed on who would take control of education, as both felt that they needed a strong influence on the young.
The Roman Catholic Church had lost all it’s land in the unification of Italy
When all of these treaties were signed and agreed on, Mussolini’s popularity rose to an all time high, he had got what he wanted by gaining the support of both the church and people.
