Excerpt from The Book of Italy: Under the Auspices of Her Majesty Queen Elena of Italy

The chief aim of this book is to help the Italian Soldiers' and Sailors' Families in the United King dom, and the Italian Red Cross, for which the Pro Italia Committee of London has already appealed in many forms, and with most encouraging results, to the unbounded generosity of the British public. But, by means of this new form of appeal, a further end is served, which though outside the scope of mere work of public assistance, is not outside that of Caritas in the widest meaning of the word.

If the present crisis, according to the most earnest hopes of our countries at war, is to produce some good for the world at large and promote the advancement of mankind, the main aspect of such a benefit from the war should surely be a closer intimacy, fostered by knowledge and under standing, among the nations which are now united by community of ideals and of sufferings. The first idea of The Book of Italy was therefore that of a symposium, at which British and Italian writers, artists, and musicians should meet, and interchange their gifts expressing the soul and mutual love of the two nations. But it soon appeared that insuperable difficulties, of a merely material order, would prevent us from making the Italian part of the book truly representative of modern Italian life and thought, while the quick and large responsethat our appeal for contributions obtained in this country induced us to build it up in the fashion of a purely British home, where the few Itahan contributors and the single French one should figure as passing guests, and the Editor fill the humble post of a master of the ceremonies.
