Snapshots during training


These images show the training undertaken by cadet officers at the military academy in Modena. Italian soldiers were given a hurried, often inadequate, preparation. The new recruits were sent quickly to trenches where an attack looked imminent.

The military academy of Modena descended from the Royal Academy of Savoy, founded in Turin in September 1677, and still exists.
