Description

English

This image, with its portraits of prominent politicians and military figures, appears in many publications produced during World War One. Different characters are depicted in different iterations, depending on the message. In this case, it is emphasised that, through the ‘word’ and the ‘sword’ of the characters represented, it will be possible to achieve victory, justice and freedom. In general the posters that have the allies as their theme are optimistic, especially those relating to America, whose entry into the war brought hope to many.

Italian

Questa immagine, con i ritratti di importanti uomini politici e militari è ripresa in molte stampe dell’epoca ed è stata utilizzata con differenti personaggi a seconda del messaggio da trasmettere. In questo caso viene sottolineato come, attraverso la “parola” e la “spada” dei personaggi rappresentati sarà possibile raggiungere la vittoria e il trionfo della giustizia e della libertà. In generale i manifesti che hanno come tema gli alleati, sono portatori di ottimismo, soprattutto quelli riguardanti gli americani, dalla cui entrata in guerra ci si aspettava molto.
