He was killed in Picardy

in his blunt writing style, Hemingway simply states: '' He was killed in Picardy ''.. In these few verse, he shows all the bluntness of death... '' On a sunny day ''..

Picardy is a historical territory in the northern part of France (North-East) From Wikipedia: - The name Picardy (which may have referred to a Frankish tribe of picards or pike-bearers) was not used until the 12th or 13th century. During this time, the name applied to all lands where the Picard language was spoken, which included all the territories from Paris to the Netherlands. - In the 16th century, the government (military region) of Picardy was created. This became a new administrative region of France, separate from what was historically defined as Picardy. - One of the most significant historical events to occur in Picardy was the series of battles fought along the Somme during World War I. From September 1914 to August 1918, four major battles, including the Battle of the Somme, were fought by British, French, and German forces in the fields of Northern Picardy.

The only man I ever loved Said good bye And went away He was killed in Picardy On a sunny day. - In ITALIAN: L'unico uomo che abbia mai amato Disse addio E se ne andò. Venne ucciso in Picardia In una giornata di sole.
