Quando i soldati albanesi diventarono soldati italiani. Un documento poco conosciuto della storia 'nera' dell'Albania


The following contribution presents the rather unknown publication "Per te, soldato d'Albania" from 1941. This book, intended as a manual for the Albanian soldiers who were incorporated into the Italian armed forces after the occupation of Albania by Fascist Italy, is a work of pure Fascist propaganda. The content and argumentation are aimed at portraying and justifying the occupation of 1939 as a teleological historical event. This, as well as the language, make this propaganda work a unique document of that dark period of Albania's history which should not be forgotten.
