From the Front [Artico]


Seen a century later as one enormous theater, Europe’s battlefields had been the stage of an incredible drama. In this context, roles disappeared substituted by a universal pain that erased enmities: from Turkish to Australia, from Canada to Hungary, England, US, Germany, Belgium, Italy and Catalonia, soldiers’ records narrate the experience of a shared hell, lived with no difference between opposite flags. This Zibaldone tries to retrace this worldwide feeling through the recollection of excerpts of diaries and letters from the fronts.
