Map showing Schio in the foothills of the Prealpi Vicentini, and the Veneto in the context of the Italian peninsular. Fantin's home town of San Vito de Leguzzano was and is a hamlet in the Schio district. In 1916 the district was the objective of the Hapsburg `Strafexpedition ' or `Punitive Expedition, the codename of the Austrian spring offensive which only narrowly failed to knock Italy out of the Great War.
