Board game dedicated to the war of Ethiopia and published in Milan-Niguarda in 1936 by Paolo Santagostino (from which it takes its name) Hosiery. In the game, two children, who were already the main characters of a children's novel of the time, Children of the wave, cross a path of 86 boxes in which historical episodes, adventures and advertising of Italian products occur, to arrive in Addis Ababa, capital city of Ethiopia. In this way, children were involved, though a recreational activity, on dates, facts and protagonists of Italian colonialism.
