The exhibition presents a selection of photographs, which document the Italian Front at the end of the First World War. The photographer Luigi Marzocchi has provided an invaluable testimony of the Great War, capturing not only living conditions of the soldiers but also the impact of war on civilians. Luigi Marzocchi’s collection of over thousand photographs are held by the Museum of the Battle of Vittorio Veneto in Italy.
The exhibition was developed with the assistance of the Italian Embassy in Canberra and the Museum of the Battle of Vittorio Veneto, and was first displayed in 2018 to commemorate the Centenary of the First World War.
