ENGLISH: The contribution illustrates the success of the Corpus Nummorum Italicorum, mostly through the analysis of the reviews which followed the issues of the various vo- lumes. These reviews seem to be free and fairly critical only in regard to the earliest volumes (published 1910-1917), while they tend to became merely rhetorical and hagiographic after 1922. This was probably the consequence of the growing role of the Fascist movement in Italy, which made more and more difficult to openly criticizes the authorities, among which the Italian king was the highest. A side effect of this attitude was that the amateurs and even the scholars tended to see the classifications and the dating suggested by the Corpus almost as a "revealed truth", what greatly hampered the Medieval numismatic studies in Italy for a long period.
