The original Italian propaganda poster of this image was published by Bergamo: Instituto Italiano d'Arti Grafiche in 1917 and measured 9 x 6 feet. There are only two known copies, one of which is in the British Library, the other in the Library of Congress. A powerful anti-German image, it depicts a giant, representing Germany, crushing bodies. This image is complementary to another Canevari design entitled Russian Peace.
