On 21 October 1919, the Italian Government established that 4 November would be the day dedicated to commemorating Italy's victory in the First World War, and that the "Unknown Soldier" would also be celebrated.
Mrs. Bergamas of Gradisca d'Isonzo, mother of a soldier, Austrian deserter and Italian fighter, then lost in the war, chose a coffin among eleven "unknown soldiers”.
A train with mourning decorations, led by railwaymen with valour decorations, led him at a very slow pace between two uninterrupted lines of people who threw flowers at the coffin, from Aquileia to Rome, where he was buried in the Altar of the Fatherland after the religious ceremony.
The commemoration had a tremendous media impact: all the newspapers dedicated extensive coverage to the event, which was also remembered with postcards and various objects, including this beautiful high relief casting, made by the Cooperativa Fonditori Mutilati of Rome.
