    The "Italian job" is a sarcastic (one could almost say satirical) propaganda item, modelled in its design and wording on a death notice. It says:



    "Gripped by deep detestation, the undersigned faithful friends submit to the remaining neutral decent peoples the cathartic news of the breach of faith by their once untainted confederate

    Italy,

    who, on Whit Sunday 1915 - otherwise known as the feast of joy and blithesomeness - has run over to her worthy friends in the enemy camp after 33 years of a parasitic existence, in return for a traitor's wages, provided with the solacements of the guileful Entente, due to a broken word of honor and an unsatiable greed for territories.
    The cremation of this perjuror is to take place on the same day with the participation of numerous Krupp- and Skoda cannons, without mercy and compassion and with the simultaneous expungement from the register of humanity.
    We and our descendants shall preserve a worthy obituary to this breach of faith which is without precedent in the history of the world.
