"Lolmo" was the pseudonym author Domenico Zavattero used most in collaborating with Carlo Tresca, writing for Il Martello

Zavattero was an Italian anarchist editor, activist, and polemicist, known for his disputes with anarchic-individualists. He also contributed to other anarchist periodicalsMost of his lengthier works were published in Italy.

This work begins by clearing up the difference between a "revolution" and an "insurrection." The first embraces a period in the life of a people and involves vast movements thanks to which human society acclerates the process of its development, while "insurrezione" is a restrained or local movement of the moment, with a political and determined object, or simply an episode of a revolutionary action.

Zavattero then discusses the revolution in Russia and the events in Spain, though he notes it's too early to tell how that will turn out - that is, whether it's an insurrection or a real revolution -  and finally what awaits Italy.
