I don't have it in front of me but the first ed copyright was 1995

from the RPg encyclopedia

Og: The Role-Playing Game
1st ed by Aldo Ghiozzi (1995) Wingnut Games
2nd ed (2000)
Unearthed ed by Robin D. Laws (2007)
A humorous beer-and-pretzels mini-RPG about cavemen vs dinosaurs. Players choose 1 of 5 types of cavemen: strong caveman, smart caveman, fast caveman, hitting caveman, or healthy caveman. The twist is that players are limited to a 17 word vocabulary at all times: you, me, rock, water, fire, tree, hair, bang, sleep, smelly, small, cave, food, thing, big, sun, and go.

It's an American game, not an Italian one. The author, Aldo Ghiozzi, is an Italian American and he owns Impressions Advertising and Marketing. I still suggest for you to buy Mondi Eroici where the 'mistery' of Aldo Ghiozzi is clearly explained.
