In the 1930s on Monte Grappa, Feltre, Quero and Pederoba there have been built different shrines, mausoleums or monumental cemeteries to gather the corps of Italian, Austrian, Hungarian, German, English and French soldiers who died between October 1917 and November 1918 on Monte Grappa and Piave and buried in countless cemeteries which were situated near battle fields or behind military hospitals.
Do not forget to visit the Military Shrines and River Piave in Nervesa della Battaglia.
In addition there is Bassano del Grappa with its majestic Ponte Vecchio, also called Ponte degli Alpini, River Brenta and all the places that have highlighted the events of World War I and World War II.
The tour that we offer symbolically traces the battle fields, though it also describes a daily routine which was practically identical on both sides of the field; simple men, brave youths who were ready to give up everything for “Monte Grappa, tu sei la mia patria…”
