In 1926, Corrado Gini published a study which estimated the number of Italian military deaths during WWI. In the same year, the Ministry of War initiated the compilation of the Albo d’oro (Roll of Honour), an ambitious project which aimed to determine the number and record the names of all the military personnel killed during the conflict, and which was not completed until 1964. Referring to Gini’s work, this paper examines the different estimates of Italian military deaths in light of information contained in the Albo d’oro.
