When WW1 began Italy was nominally (that is, on paper) a member of the Triple Alliance. However, the Italian government kept Italy neutral till 1915, then entered the war on the side of the Entente as Italy had long-standing claims on some territory in Austria-Hungary. Italy didn't fight very effectively and needed a lot of support from Britain and France. At the end of the war Italy was awarded the Southern Tyrol and some 'bits and pieces' on the Adriatic Coast. There was disappointment and the emerging Fascists seized Trieste. Many Italians felt as if Italy was being treated as a defeated country. It's sometimes said that this, together with fear of Bolshevism, played a key part in enabling Mussolini to come to power in 1922.
