A small size booklet was found by the author among the papers of Luigi Sacco, his grandfather, founder and chief of the Italian Army cryptographic office (a.k.a. Reparto crittografico) during WW1. This paper presents a new research, still work in progress, about new cryptograms found in the booklet containing historical links to events of WW1.
