Remembered Today:

Poster - "I nostri valorosi marinai" and "l'isola di Pelagosa."


Recommended Posts

On my last day of work before retirement I discovered this in a box... I think Pelagosa is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palagruža, so is the picture of the 1915 attack mentioned in Wikipedia? The caption reads I nostri valorosi marinai respingono la flotta Austriaca che tenta di riprender l'isola di Pelagosa.

The details show the imprint and the artist's (?) name.

PS: I'm doing this to satisfy my own curiosity, not for work!!

Italian Wikipedia has the same poster:


with the caption : "Italian propaganda poster that emphasizes the defense of the island during the battle of 30 July "

The poster itself is titled: "Our valiant sailors repel the Austrian fleet which attempts to retake the island of Pelagosa."

Name of the printer: Stabilimento Tipo-Litografico Edoardo Ducci, Via dei Pilastri 32, Firenze

Thank you JWK!

Unfortunately there's absolutely no hint as to how the poster reached its present location, which is a pity.
