To the population of occupied countries!

Description

English

This leaflet, dated 12 July 1918, is addressed to the Italian population of the Veneto and Friuli regions, which had been occupied by the Austrian army since 1917. The leaflet urges people not to collaborate with the enemy. It reminds them that the punishment for doing so would be the ‘state’s most severe criminal penalty (a death sentence)’. In November 1918 the Italian army mounted successful attacks and regained the Veneto and Friuli regions.

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