Monumento ai Caduti di Poggio


icona Monumento ai Caduti di Poggio
Monumento ai Caduti di Poggio
Area: Garfagnana
District/Locality: Camporgiano
Address: via San Biagio

The monument, dedicated to the Fallen of both wars, is composed of a tombstone in pietra serena* and a bronze sculpture which represents two soldiers (it is clear the reference to the First and the Second War) while they are falling. Under the tombstone and the sculpture, there is a basin in pietra serena and, on the right of the tombstone, a lamp.
*pietra serena: grey stone
Date

The tombstone has been inaugurated on 13th August 1972. As some local newspapers articles prove, ("La Nazione" and "La Garfagnana") there was a tombstone erected before the big war that was destroyed during the second war. The new tombstone and the bronze sculpture have been inaugurated on 1972, at the presence of civil, military and religious authorities.
Author

The entire complex has been designed by the architect Piero Pieri, who has also projected the church near the monument. The two soldiers have been realized by Vitaliano de Angelis, of Leghorn, teacher at the art school Passaglia of Lucca.
