We visited this monument after visiting the home town of some of the Italian soldiers who were killed here. The monument in Bezzecca in Trentino, Italy commemorates these terrible events so it was very moving to see the places where these atrocities were committed.

But did you see the pit nearby where 136 Italians of the Acqui Divisione were massacred and their bodies burned to erase all trace of them ? Stop by next time and say a prayer for them
