Assistance and education of mutilated soldiers of World War I. The Italian case

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Assistance to mutilated soldiers and their inclusion back into society as working men, rather than invalids, became mandatory for Italy in 1915 as for the States that had already joined the War. War crippled had to be persuaded they could and should be active again, and sane people were to be moved to help them with donations, but it soon became evident the State had to intervene granting a work or a pension. The Institute for rickets sufferers of Milan was leader in Italy and abroad in surgical and in educational care.
