Product Description

2015 marks the 100th anniversary of Italy’s entry into the First World War.

ASI wanted to contribute to the memory of this Anniversary with a necessarily “fast” publication, since a historical event of this magnitude could only be exhibited with the synthesis of a cartoon, and with a semi-serious spirit, since that event historically favorable to us it was however a tragedy, which not even a rereading of the description of the battle of Caporetto that Hemingway made in “A Farewell to Arms” can make us imagine.

A drama that the concise definition of “useless massacre” makes it appear in all its enormity.

The simple cartoons by Nino Di Fazio are therefore an antidote, a sweetening of the pill that history periodically forces us to “throw down”, to smile at our mistakes by admonishing us not to commit others.
