Non solo pianto e fiori. Turismo sui campi di battaglia della prima guerra mondiale


After the conflict a new form of tourism began to develop, dedicated to visiting battlefields of family members of fallen soldiers, veterans and curious to see the places of the battles. Tourism in war zones was promoted since 1919 by Touring Club Italiano, ENIT and many associations of former combatants. During the fascism it was also promoted by Opera Nazionale Dopolavoro and other mass organizations of the regime. Fascism would have used tourism on the battlefields as a political tool to strengthen the consensus for the regime and to demonstrate the greatness of Italy, the country that won the First World War.
