Italian Soldiers in WW1

Postby Leanne82 » 27 Mar 2009, 02:40

Hi There,

Where can I find information on Italian soldiers who died in World War 1 in Russia? Is there a public list? My great-grandfather was born in Stridone - which was Italy at the time and is now Istria - Croatia.

I have an alternate address for those killed in action. This address is
Commissariato Generale
Onoranze Caduti in Guerra
PIazza Le Luigi Sturzo 23
0144, Roma, Italy (telephone 06-5913632)

I am offering this alternative address with a view toward knowing which is the most current address for this information so that we will know which is the correct one to use. Please keep us posted. Perhaps when you send the Italian language request you might want to use the format for military records found in www.angelfire.com/ok3/pearlsofwisdom/saviello2.html as the base for your request. =Peter=

Thanks Riccardo because the information was listed as being most recent.

The address ViaXX Settembre, Roma Italy under www.esercito.difesa.it/root/Storico/index.asp reflects that the History Archive, the Combatants benefits and other centralmilitary library documents were divided up and annexed to two other offices in Rome. One in Via Etruria, one via Via Lepanto and the remaining in Via XX Settembre but it didn't specify which went where. Thanks and good to see you back. =Peter=

As my knowledge, there war no italin soldier died in Russia in WWI.
There was battalion or regiment at all.
Only in 1919 a Regiment reach Russia for a short time.

It could be in WWII?

Once you get there, click the "Accedi al sistema di ricerca" link in the middle of the page.

On the next page, put Marasco in the box labeled Cognome and click the Aviva Ricerca button. Surprisingly, I do not see your grandfather listed in the results. It may be necessary to try multiple spellings of the surname before finding the record.

The other boxes on the form are Nome = given name, Anno di Nascita = year of birth, Luogo Nascita = place of birth. Note that dates in the results lists are written dd/mm/yyyy.
Carmine

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)

Hello,
also you can contact Bologna State Archive, where there should be kept a copy of the comunication about his death to his family.
write only in italian to

as-bo@beniculturali.it

Also contact the civil record of the municipality where he was born so you would know the reason why he died and where initially was buried.

Comune
Ufficio di Stato Civile
P.zza Vescovado snc
88040 Martirano (CZ)
ITALY

anagrafe@comune.martirano.cz.it

statocivile@comune.martirano.cz.it

I hope it helps,
bye Riccardo
