Single sheet of a French? Resistance aerial leaflet with solidarity messages for Italian workers from leaders of the trade union movement in France and Britain.
Leaflets calling for working-class action against Nazi-fascism in the German-occupied Italian Social Republic from communist, socialist, and revolutionary parties belonging to the National Liberation Committee coalition or the armed resistance movement: Partito Socialista Italiano di Unità Proletaria, Partito d’Azione, Il Fronte della Gioventù (part of the Italian Communist Party [PCI]), Fronte degli Intellettuali (PCI?), and Partito Repubblicano Italiano.
With the exception of Foglio Volante and Lo Stato, most of these examples were presumably published clandestinely in Turin and environs. At least two published in the days following liberation, either celebrating the first postwar Labor Day (May 1) or insisting on a new democratic Italian republic to represent the working class.
