And today, May 24, 2015, we commemorate the centenary of Italy’s entry in the Great War. Choosing the right image for this post wasn’t an easy task. My choice fell on this picture of the young volunteer from the Battaglione Ciclisti with his family. A scene which reminds other ones in France, England and Germany in August 1914. 10 months of war in Europe and hundreds of thousands killed ans maimed soldiers weren’t enough to make Italian people that this war wouldn’t be sharp and short?
