I blame their gorgeous womens and above-all-with-french-cuisine tier meals.

Why fight when you have everything you need?

Btw Italians are a proud people and didn't took to kindly on Mussolini going bossy on everyone's ass.

Also considering that Italy was a unified country for less than 100 years, they were still very sectional and proud. Working together was not the norm for their entire existence.

Put toghether a deep hatred for each other (southerns and northerns) and two different languages (dialects were different enough for them not to understand). These problems faded in WWII, but there was a ridicolous command line, where orders were relayed from Rome. They sent entire platoons against fortified machinegun positions pretending it was someone else's fault.
Italian soldiers weren't bad, everything else was, from equipment to the commanders, in both wars. In the Isbuscenskij battle these fuckers won with a fucking cavalry charge against the ruskies human waves.

During ww1 (and to some extent ww2), most of the officials spoke a complete different language from the troops.
Imagine being put into a unity were the lieutenant is the only one tactician and no fucking one understands what he says. Assuming that you trusted someone whose parents were most likely your own parents' enemy in some intestine skirmish.

Plus, Italy featured one of the worst army logistics of any nation during both the World Wars (summer equipment and no shoes before going to Russia, to tell you one).

that 36,000 is supposed to read 300,000. the numbers were changed to make it seem like 85,000 men weren't just thrown into the jaws of death on a whim, better to make it seem like a wicked enemy victory than a devastating allied blunder.

This is often overlooked, and explains a lot of Italy's military track record.
Even today there is a seemingly insurmountable rift between north and south, and regional differences still play a major role in internal politics.

To make things worse, the transition to a professional military and the abolition of compulsory military service has led to a dramatic imbalance in the make up of the forces. Most service members are southerners who turn to the state for a safe source of income, so it's basically welfare in disguise.

He really only comes off as a badass due to the sheer incompetence and cowardice of pretty much every Korean naval official before him.
