A brief annotation A hundred years ago, on May 24, 1915, Italy entered World War I that tragically involved twenty-eight Countries and inexorably changed their destiny. The defeat of Caporetto was the most difficult moment for Italy, but the Italian resistance on the Piave front represented its revenge. A coin now rekindles its historical memory to foster peace.
