Ragazzi del ’99


“1899 Boys” was the name given in Italy to the young men born in 1899 and who were sent to the battlefields in November 1917, when Italy was fighting against Austro-Hungarian troops on the Piave River. The sacrifice of this young generation is still remembered in Italy. Who knows if this very young soldier of the 41st reggimento di fanteria was one of them?
