In 1920 he moved to Paris, and later to Rapallo in Italy.
During the Second World War he made a series of propagandist broadcasts over Radio Rome, for which he was later tried in the United States and subsequently committed to a hospital for the insane.
After thirteen years, he was released and returned to Italy; dying in Venice in 1972.
