Edda Ciano, 84, who renounced her family name after her father, fascist dictator Benito Mussolini, ordered her husband's execution, died Saturday in a Rome hospital, where she was admitted 10 days earlier. Her doctor said she had been weakened by an operation to remove a kidney abscess. RAI state television said she was the first Italian woman to publicly drive a car and to wear pants.
