The First World War, even on the occasion of its centenary, has always been the subject of reflection regarding the memoirs, diaries, literature and cinema. That event, as repeatedly pointed out, represented a starting point (of the "Short Century") in breaking the timing of modernity, of disillusionment (narrated and renarrated) for that generation, and, at the same time, subject for myths (fascism and the myth of the trenches) or removal and opposition (for next generation, the generation of resistance). First World War has been a social laboratory, for science, mentality and culture (cf., "Il laboratorio della guerra", to quote Gibelli, Fussell, Leed), about literacy innovation, diaries and perception (from Celine to Cendrars, to Musil), with the link between art, technology and war. The purpose of this paper is, taking account of that vast horizon of experiences, to work on a specific case: the hypothesis of the link between war / and possible revoution, as proposed by Curzio Malaparte in his Viva Caporetto! The revolt of the damned saints. Working on the complex and contradictory path of Malaparte (participation to fascism until its criticism and rejection, because of his anarchist vision), and the approaching to the communist party and leftist ideas after the second world war. In any case, I will try to show how discursive devices, values and metaphors work in the text of Malaparte. This text is also interesting for a comparison with other texts and authors: both in terms of thematic organizations, of point of views, in the forms of utterance; as well as organizations narrative, exposing not only the story of the defeat of Caporetto, but, more generally, the "time when men decide to stop fighting" and, perhaps, to transform this moment into something else.
