The Hungarian review Corvina, published in Italian since 1921 just after the signing of the Treaty of Trianon, documents the evolution of the Hungarian-Italian diplomatic and political connection. Corvina's founder, Albert Berzeviczy, like many Hungarians, sought a revision of the treaty, which had deprived Hungary of nearly 70 percent of its territory and population. In Corvina, contributors used literature, history, and art to reconstruct a Hungarian national past that was almost mythical in its forms, with Italy and Hungary tightly connected. Art came to symbolize a past in which Hungary was still a great kingdom. From this point of view, the so-called Angevin Naples-born kings, Charles I (1310–1342) and his son Louis the Great (1342–1382), and most important of all, King Mathias Corvinus (1458–1490), were the protagonists of a fabulous era very far from a sad and later tragic present.
