What claims did Italy make at the Paris Peace Conference?
The Treaty of London (1915)
The Treaty of London was an agreement made by Britain, France and Russia with the aim of encouraging Italy to join the First World War on their side (the Triple Entente).
Under the Treaty of London (1915), Italy was promised land by the Allies in return for joining the First World War.
Following the First World War, the Italian people felt that they deserved everything under the Treaty of London, with the addition of Fiume. This was because they had lost 700,000 soldiers and a significant amount of capital.
However, partly due to poor communication (he could not speak English well) and a lack of bargaining power Prime Minister Vittorio Emanuele Orlando was unable to obtain some of the territories claimed by Italy at the Paris Peace Conference on June 28th 1919. As Italy was unable to obtain all the land they claimed (and some of the land they were promised), they called their victory in World War One a "Mutilated Victory".
As they were unable to receive their wishes, the Italian government was discredited and Prime Minister Orlando resigned.
