Reconstructing the Milanese context in which Carlo Emilio Gadda and his younger brother Enrico matured their interventionism, the article provides an account of how the two brothers lived the months between August 1914 and June 1915. By offering new insights into the already available documentation and by taking into account some unpublished materials kept in the Gadda archives of Florence and Villafranca di Verona, the article analyses Carlo Emilio’s disposition towards war, showing how his vision deviated from other currents of interventionism.
