Enlistment age

Post by Ste » 15 Mar 2021 09:44

Good morning,
it was possibile to be enlisted in the Italian Army at the age of 17?
I stumbled upon a possibile far relative of my fianceè, who was born at the beginning of 1925 and died in mid 1942, apparently as a soldier.

Thank you in advance

Yes, a citizen can volunteer/enlist at the age of 17. That is the youngest age one can join.
