The tombstone dedicated to the Fallen of the first world war is located on a stone wall which encloses the Memorial Park.

In the lower part there is the town emblem and a garland, at the centre the commemorative inscription.
Date

Probably the work has been realized between 1926 and 1929. In a short article published on "Popolo Toscano" on 2nd February 1926, you can read that the works for the Park of Molazzana are going on together with those for the monument to Fallen and that there are some offers also by American emigrants. The official inauguration was on 29th August 1929, at the presence of military, civil and religious authorities. During the ceremony there was the blessing of the tombstone by the arch-priest, who was also the inventor of the project, Father Antonio Vannucci. Then, the official oration of the First Podestà of Molazzana, Pasquale Righini.
