San Donà del Piave after the fighting


This photograph is not an official one, but may have been taken by a member of the public and sent to the newspaper Il Mondo. Months of particularly heavy fighting took place near the small town of San Donà del Piave, in the eastern Veneto between Caporetto and the Piave River. Much of the architectural and artistic heritage of the city was irreparably destroyed.

Il Mondo was a weekly publication focusing on politics and culture, printed in Rome between 1949 and 1966.
