A poster about barbed wire

You know my passion for barbed wire; this is the kind of poster I’d really like to own! This poster, displayed in a exhibition held in Andalo (see my post published yesterday) was published by Italian Army during the Great War. It shows the different kind of reticolati, i.e. barbed wire structures.

Here are some details of it… Fig. 11 shows a use of low barbed wire, whereas fig. 3 is the classical cheval de frise.

Figures below are more linked to nature: Fig. 7 is named siepe (hedge), whereas Fig.11, groviglio, can be translated as tangle.
