“Original bibliographic identification”

Annali Italiani di Chirurgia is the oldest national surgery journal in Italy. To put it in a historical perspective, it was founded in 1922, the same year as the March on Rome, and thus at the time when a nationalistic movement took hold of unified postwar Italy. The journal was founded by Professor Giovanni Pascale, who was a surgeon at the Federico II University in Naples, a senator of the kingdom of Italy, and the founder of the Tumor Institute in Naples, and by Licino Cappelli, who was the director of the prestigious Licini Cappelli Editore publishing house in Bologna. Annali Italiani di Chirurgia was always listed in international guides to articles, first in the Index Medicus, and then in MEDLARS, the computerized index system of the US National Library of Medicine.
