Memorie della Grande Guerra
Where VIA VITTORIO VENETO, 26, Bolzano (Bolzano/Bozen)
The Bolzano "World War I Historical Society" has made it their job to preserve the memory of the First World War as a deterring example against war. With the motto "Lest We Forget, 1914-1918", several rooms were consequently set up with exhibits and archeological finds from this period that were collected with tremendous effort over many years. The Museum Society has also restored the Austro-Hungarian positions along the former front lines on the Trevisan plateau (Fedaia) and at the foot of the Marmolada. In collaboration with the Austrian Schwarzes Kreuz (Black Cross), the Society has in recent years discovered the remains of six fallen soldiers and laid them to rest in the memorials at Pian Salesei and Asiago.
