Nota biografica

The Central Institute for the Union Catalogue of Italian Libraries and Bibliographic Information took on the current denomination in 1975 following the constitution of The Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities, formerly the Ministry for Cultural and Environmental Heritage. The National Centre for the Union Catalogue was created in 1951 with the task of cataloguing the entire national bibliographic heritage.
This objective is pursued due to a considerable collaboration strategy among Italian libraries even coming under varied administrations. This ensures the development of services on the same level throughout the entire nation. Resulting from this collaboration is the establishment of the National Library Service. This national on-line service network, to which the state, local institutions, and university libraries is connected, contribute to the founding of the national collective on-line catalogue which is managed by the Institute.
The Institute, whose reference point is the General Direction for Library Heritage, Cultural Institutes and Copyright, carries out coordination functions with due respect to library autonomy in the field of National Library Service as well as cataloguing projects accomplished through the use of new information technology. ICCU acts as coordinator of the National Library Service (SBN) and of the digitalization projects produced by using metadata standards and related to the project Italian Digital Library (BDI).

Ambito e contenuto

This Digital Collection of periodicals provides about 35 newspapers and 37 Italian trench journals from the First World War period. Most of the newspapers are Italian special editions aimed to narrate the bloody war in Europe. The images and the news presented by these journals track people sentiments about the war week by week. Events of the war are detailed creating a pictorial record of both the war effort and life at home. Some periodicals include an illustrated and photographed history of World War I that graphically documents the people, places, and events important to the war. The trench journals, through their wit and black humor, present a unique selection of wry, humorous and poignant submissions from the Italian soldiers. They contain poems, sketches, short stories, jokes, plays, letters, editorial cartoons, articles and a wider commentary on military and civilian life written and illustrated by the soldiers. Produced, mostly unofficially, by every type of unit engaged in the war, they are a reflection of theirs units and were principally distributed only to the members of the unit.
