With the analysis of some school yearbooks published between 1918 and 1924, this pa-per aims at describing how the influence of D’Annunzio’s seizure of Fiume was felt in the everyday life of secondary schools in the Venezia Giulia region. After the first World War, D’Annunzio’s fame was immense, not only as an outstanding poet, but even more as a war hero. So it doesn’t come as a surprise that, a few days after September 12, 1919, his endeavour was greeted with genuine enthusiasm even in some official publications. Yet, during the occupation of Fiume, less attention was seemingly paid to what was actually happening in that town, while celebrations of the victory in the war, and of the volunteers from Venezia Giulia who had fallen fighting in the Italian army, very often used the Vate’s peculiar language, and above all the religious imagery of his patriotism. In this way, the memory of the Fiume enterprise was largely used to pave the way for the rise of Fascism.
