Alceste de Ambris was involved in the agrarian strikes of 1908. He also caused a split within the Unione Sindacale Milanese when he advocated the participation of Italy in the First World War in 1914. At the time he expected the war to have an impact equal to the French Revolution. The Fasci d'Azione rivoluzionaria internazionalista was founded and attracted Mussolino who joined with his own movement.

Together with Gabriele d'Annunzio he was the author of the Charter of Carnaro, a constitution for Fuime. Although he was initially linked to facism he soon became an opponent of Mussolini's dictatorship. De Fabris and D'Annuncio both refuse to run for the Fascists in the election of 1921. He denounced the Fascist movement and lost his citizenship in 1926. He fled to France where he continued to attack Mussolini in his writings. He died in 1934.
