Armi della morte - Armi per la vita! Sottoscrivete al prestito della vittoria [Weapons of death - Weapons for life! Subscribe to the Victory loan]
An Italian First World War poster advertising promoting a victory war loan. It was designed by T. Curbella and printed by E. Guazzoni in Rome. The image features two young boys working over a fiery forge to transform weapons into plows. The image takes up the majority and is framed within a narrow black border. The title printed in black ink is positioned beneath the image. Both image and title are set against a white background. The text translates as follows: 'Weapons of death - Weapons for life! Subscribe to the Victory Loan'.
