The scale of this monument is highly impressive and, without using a drone, I don't think photos really do it justice. So many names listed is moving. Interesting to see that Mussolini's role in creating the monument has not been removed from history in the plaque at the top of the monument. Perhaps there could be a little more information for visitors to learn about the reasons for this monument's existence.
Stop by and honour the boys who built the world for us. One of the saddest corners in Italy. It is one of the largest military memorial cemetery in honour of the soldiers who died in Isonzo front during the first world war. While you visit the place, I invite you to kindly imagine the horror of a war, the pain and suffering of the boys and the suffering of the family back in their homes. Do we need another war ? ... Anywhere??? Near the cemetery and on the other side of the hill, one may observe trenches and the guns and shells used during the war. Ample parking. Highly recommended. Please bring young kids and show them the horror.
