  • F. Caffé
Reference work entry


Barone was born in Naples on 22 December 1859 and died in Rome on 14 May 1924. His education provided him with a solid grounding in the classics and in mathematics, with a view to embarking on a military career. He was appointed in 1894 to the Officers’ Training School, where he was ‘teacher in charge of military history’. He remained in this position until 1902, when he became the head of the historical office of the General Staff, and was given the rank of colonel.
