"In the midst of World War 1, a patrotric group decided to publish Le Trait-D'Union, a daily publication intended to promote closer ties between France and Italy, and correctly believed that Cappiello would bee the ideal spokesman to publicize it. He envisions a man exhorting his countrymen to unity as he stands between the two flags" (from #271 Poster of Leonetto Cappiello / Rennert)
