Military Veterans in Trentino
This chapter takes the analysis of the veterans’ movement a step further by providing a case study of one of the Habsburg Monarchy’s Italian-speaking areas, which have been less well served by recent research. In the southern Italian-speaking part of Tyrol, unofficially known as Trentino, military veterans’ associations emerged in the 1870s, before expanding more rapidly after 1900 as part of a new wave of socio-economic organizations in the countryside. As well as analyzing in detail the main types of patriotic activity undertaken by veterans, the chapter discusses their role in the process of politicization as political Catholicism challenged the dominance of National-Liberal elites.
